The picturesque Engadine village of Zernez is the gateway to the Swiss National Park, Switzerland’s biggest nature preserve. But Zernez is also an ideal starting point for journeys of discovery in the Engadine and the Switzerland – Italy - Austria three-country-triangle.

«Allegra» - is the romantic greeting with which visitors are welcomed to Zernez. The year-round rail connection with a car transport service through the Vereina Tunnel has made the holiday resort of Zernez (1474 metres above sea level) in the uppermost part of the Lower Engadine and close to the Flüela and Ofen Mountain Passes even more easily accessible. First and foremost Zernez is the gateway to the Swiss National Park and location of the “National Park House” information centre. And Zernez is also a perfect starting point for excursions in the direction of the Lower Engadine (Scuol), the Upper Engadine (St. Moritz, Pontresina), via the Flüela Pass to Davos or over the Ofen Pass to the Münster Valley.

The guests can find accommodation in hotels, vacation apartments, tourist camps, and private rooms as well as on the large campground on the Inn River.

In winter Zernez offers cross-country skiers access to the extensive track network of the Lower and Upper Engadine which includes the 15-kilometre-long, widly romantic forest track between S-chanf and Zernez. Winter walkers enjoy the peacefulness of the snow-covered Engadine countryside on groomed trails.

Skiers and snowboarders can access the big ski regions of the Lower and Upper Engadine in no time. The toboggan run of Mount Baselgia, an artificial ice rink and the natural ice rink complete the winter offerings in Zernez. Only the National Park shows winter guests the cold shoulder, since it is buried under a deep layer of snow.
The National Park – measuring 170.3 square kilometres the biggest nature preserve in Switzerland – offers a unique wealth of Alpine animals and plants in untouched, wild mountain countryside. A hiking network provides the perfect opportunity to explore the park. Just outside the city precincts there is not only a network of hiking trails but also a fantastic biking trail network.

The three Nordic Walking Trails offer further sports activities, as does the Vita Parcours in the forest. A family and wellness spa, a minigolf-course and a playground add to the infrastructure and further enhance the visitor’s experience.
