The visitors' center in Zernez houses permanent exhibitions about the National Park, changing exhibitions about natural history and a platform for nature conservancy organizations. Excursions for children and families lead far into the park and encourage the playful exploration and discovery of the environment even for small children. Nature-related offerings promote awareness and understanding of nature for teenagers.

A free return ticket: When they travel to a park, the visitors can buy a single ticket. They then ask the event's or activity's organisor to stamp their ticket so that it makes it valid for the return trip. This offer is available from anywhere in Graubünden on Rheatian Railway and PostBus lines. More information: fahrtziel-natur.ch/retour
