The mighty spectacle of nature in the Swiss National Park.

The Swiss National Park is a symbol of the region's unique diversity and an attraction for nature lovers and hikers alike. The largest wilderness area in Switzerland covers 170 square kilometres unspoilt natural landscape and 100 kilometres of marked hiking trails. Founded in 1914, the National Park is not only the only one in Switzerland, but also the oldest in the Alps and Central Europe. This unique natural oasis is characterised by its unique high alpine flora and fauna: Deer, marmots, bearded vultures and the national park's heraldic animal, the pine jay, reside here all year round, while the rich flora really blossoms, especially in July and August. The National Park also includes the "Macun" high plateau at 2600 m above sea level above Lavin with its more than 20 mountain lakes – it is particularly rich in ibex and chamois. Together with Val Müstair and parts of the Lower Engadine municipality of Scuol, the Swiss National Park was also officially recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Engiadina Val Müstair on 13 June 2017.
