Swiss National Park

The Swiss National Park encompasses an impressive Alpine landscape with many flora and fauna. Extending over 170 km2, the Swiss National Park is the largest protected area in Switzerland and the country’s only National Park. Founded in 1914, it is the oldest national park in the Alps and central Europe.

The park is well known for its various Alpine plants and animals, such as chamois, deer and marmots. There is a wide choice of paths with differing degrees of difficulty.

The visitor Centre in Zernez provides information and an overview of the flora, fauna, park’s history and landscape.
