With an area of 172 sq km, the Swiss National Park is the largest nature reserve and only national park in Switzerland. The region is in Engadin/Münstertal and encompasses alpine terrain at altitudes of 1,400 to 3,200 metres above sea level. The foundation of the Swiss National Park in 1914 was a milestone in the history of nature conservation. It was the first national park of the Alps and Central Europe, and is famed for its abundance of alpine flora and fauna in a pristine natural landscape.

The National Park Centre consists of two contrasting landmarks: the historic Schloss Planta-Wildenberg, the administrative centre of the SNP, and the Visitors’ Centre, a striking, monolithic new building designed by famous Graubünden architect Valerio Olgiati. The Visitors’ Centre offers guests a comprehensive exhibition with permanent and temporary elements, an information desk and shop. In addition, the Zernez Tourism information office is housed in the Visitors’ Centre.
