Swiss National Park

The oldest national park in the Alps.

The Swiss National Park plays a pioneering role in the European conservation scene. Founded in 1914, it is the oldest national park in the Alps and at the same time the only wilderness area with the highest conservation status. Since 2010 and together with the municipalities of Val Müstair and Scuol, it constitutes the UNESCO-Biosfera Engiadina Val Müstair. From the end of May until the end of October, the hiking trails are usually open. The Park is closed for guests in winter and spring (winter rest of the animals). The National Parc Centre in Zernez, however, is open.
