Information about COVID-19:
From 13 September, the Covid certificate is compulsory to enter the exhibition. People staying only in the shop and information area on the ground floor do not need a Covid certificate. This rule applies to everybody from the age of 16 years. However, the use of face masks in the shop and info area remains mandatory.
2008, the Swiss National Park (SNP) opened its 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 construction designed by the Grisons architect Valerio Olgiati you will find the visitor centre. Beside an extensive permanent exhibition there are temporary exhibitions, an information desk and a shop. The Zernez Tourist Information is also here.
• In the former castle stable building there is an auditorium with seating for 150 people.
