What is a park?

A truly unique region
The Swiss parks are 19 unique areas with extraordinary landscapes and vibrant traditions.
Nature and landscapes

The parks are home to a wide range of habitats, a rich flora and fauna, a multi-faceted cultural heritage and intact townscapes and villages.

We are the parks

The Swiss parks cannot exist without the commitment of their inhabitants. They're the ones who provide the impetus to launch the project. They also form the interest groups that take part in planning the project, in establishing the park and finally in its management. The park is mainly supported by its municipalities.

Protection and value creation

The Swiss parks preserve their precious natural and cultural resources and highlight their value. They commit to boosting and strengthening their regional economy.

They offer visitors real and inspiring experiences, contact with the local community, fascinating stories and delicious local specialties
