  • The National Park Worlds are an ideal introduction for all visitors to the National Park. In eights worlds – from 3D cinema to the formation of the Alps right up to the world of glaciers – visitors will learn about the largest protected area in the Alps, its inhabitants and their habitats.

With ten stations that lead you from one natural space to another as if hiking through the national park, you will learn and understand about the area's extraordinary diversity.
