Hiking IN ENGADIN ST. MORITZ
Swiss National Park
Extraordinary, but true: in the far eastern corner of Switzerland is a world that has not changed since the days of our great-grandparents. The Park incorporates 170 square kilometres of untouched nature, in whose natural development man has not intervened for nearly one hundred years.
This paradise for flora and fauna could only come about because a number of Swiss citizens were concerned about the future of our planet as far back as the end of the 19th century. Their project to create central Europe’s first national park in Graubünden was as visionary as it was pioneering. The area has been protected from human interference since 1914; even when a forest fire raged in the Park in 1951, the authorities did not intervene. Here, many thousand species of animals and plants may be observed and admired, from dandelions and mountain pines to bearded vultures and marmots.
