Ort Auditorium Schlossstall

The famous Lower Engadine window is the result of the interplay between alpine ceiling stacking and erosion. What sounds complicated can be explained simply and "tastefully" using a cake. During the lecture, various biscuits are stacked on top of each other in front of the guests' eyes and then eroded into a "window". Thanks to this analogy, we can show and explain – biscuit by biscuit – the great diversity of the Lower Engadine rock types and their formation – from the Dolomites of the National Park to the volcanic rock of Piz Mundin. In order to go home with a sweet aftertaste of the Lower Engadine geology, everyone fearless can taste the tectonic cake. | The Auditorium Schlossstall of the Swiss National Park is located directly next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
