National Park Centre

Virtual Tour

 Exhibition  Information   Architecture 


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.
