Your day in the Swiss National Park will now be even more fascinating! The Swiss National Park app is a digital hiking guide that leads you through the National Park region with stories, information and detailed maps.
Note: Not all areas of the Park have mobile phone/online coverage; for this reason the app was created in offline mode. Most of the content of the app can be accessed offline (without Mobile Data connection). However, this results in a big app size – we therefore recommend downloading and opening the app for the first time via WIFI.
Within the Swiss National Park more than 500 information points covering biology, geology, historical facts about the Park and cultural history are waiting to be discovered by you as you hike or meander along. An interesting experience for young and old! Don’t worry about losing your way; detailed maps in various zoom levels show your current position.
When you're outdoors, the national park app provides you with a wide range of information: pictures, texts, podcasts, panoramas, landscape comparisons, interactive quizzes etc.
There are different possibilities to find the information points:
∎ Let the chance generator inspire you; it will bring you surprisingly closer to different facets of the National Park.
∎ Open the app when you are within or near the National Park. Click on "Around me" and the information points nearest to you will be shown. Distance indications and the map will help you to find the exact location.
∎ Once you are ready you can set off on your walk! In exciting places the app will automatically alert you with an acoustic signal (cuckoo!) and you will discover what fascinating observations you can make as you go along the trail.
∎ You can access the app content and information points on site off the hiking trails, or at home if you want to plan your visit to the National Park region.
Our digital hiking guide accompanies you on the entire 100 km long hiking trail network of the Swiss National Park, on various nature trails for adults and children and also beyond the borders of the National Park: Learn about the chequered history of the bear in Val Müstair, or join in the game with your children as they research the Ardez emerald region.
