National Park Centre
On May 31st 2008, after 6 years of planning and building, the Swiss National Park (SNP) was able to celebrate the opening of its new visitor centre in Zernez – probably its most important and substantial project so far.
The centre consists of three buildings that fulfill different functions:
• The venerable Planta-Wildenberg castle, which houses the SNP’s administrative centre.
• In the distinctive, monolithic new construction designed by the Grisons architect Valerio Olgiati you will find the visitor centre. Beside an extensive permanent exhibition there are temporary exhibitions, multimedia presence of our partner organisations, an information desk and a shop. Zernez Tourist Information is also here.
• In the former castle stable building there is an auditorium with seating for 150 people.
