Founded in 1914, the Swiss National Park in the Engadine is the oldest in the Alps.
On over 170 square kilometers and 80 kilometers of hiking trails, nature trails as well as children’s and family excursions, we humans have the honor to get to know this wonderful place.
Thanks to the consistent protection of nature – the hiking trails must not be left – ibex, chamois, marmots, bearded vultures and golden eagles as well as countless other animal species can be observed in the wild.
In the National Park Centre or Museum in Zernez, the park can be visited in a different way. Here you will find a lot of information about the animals and nature, you can also inform yourself about the hikes – guided or on your own. Since 3 June 2023, a new exhibition awaits you in the National Park Museum. You can find more information here.
