Even from today's point of view, what a few natural scientists succeeded in doing in the years around 1914 is still a terrific achievement: they were able to convince the population of the Engadin in a democratic process to renounce the use of almost 14,000 hectares of land and make it available to the national park idea.
The founders and the local population of that time were aware that they would not preserve an original, natural "wilderness". With the protection of a formerly used area, they set in motion a process of rewilding – a long-term experiment with an open outcome.
More than 100 years later, the idea of preserving or creating a little more wilderness in Switzerland is more relevant than ever. People in a well-planned world long for it. But what does "wilderness" mean for nature and people? And where does the Swiss National Park (SNP) stand today with its "wilderness experiment"? Some answers are provided by the director of the SNP, who has been observing this process for more than 25 years now. | The Auditorium Schlossstall of the Swiss National Park is located directly next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
