Ort National Park Centre

Johann Coaz has become known as a cantonal and federal forest inspector, topographer, alpinist (he was the first to climb Piz Bernina) and pioneer in avalanche protection. This year we celebrate his 200th birthday. In his lecture, Paul Grimm presents the close relationship between Coaz and Zernez. Coaz's work ranges from recordings for the Dufour map to plant gardens and fish farming to avalanche barriers. Last but not least, Coaz played a key role in the creation of the Swiss National Park. Paul Grimm presents not only Johann Coaz, but also the book "Nutzen und schutz, Johann Coaz (1822-1918), der Wald und die Anfänge der schweizerischen Umweltpolitik", of which he is co-author. | The Auditorium Schlossstall of the Swiss National Park is located directly next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
