Switzerland’s largest regional nature park lies in the heart of Graubünden. Untouched nature, original villages and a Unesco World Heritage site all meet here.
548 square kilometres of natural fascination: one third of Parc Ela is untouched landscape. One that encompasses peaks like the Piz Lunghin which sends its waters on a voyage to three oceans. Or the magical Alp Flix – with over 2000 species of plant and animal, a veritable treasure island of biodiversity.
The culture landscape is shaped by historic transportation routes, mighty fortresses and 19 authentic villages that have all retained their very own charm. Three cultures and three languages (German, Rhaeto-Romanic and Italian) meet in a region that is over three times the size of the national park.
The “Red Train” impressively demonstrates the harmonious interplay between man and nature: this section of the Rhaetian Railway in the Parc Ela is part of Unesco World Heritage listed terrain.
