The new exhibition
"1,000 years up and down" - this title shows the long tradition of alpine farming and its importance for the protected area. "Up and down" stands for the seasonal migrations of the alpine people and their animals from the valley up to the alpine pastures and back. Alpine pastures have an important meaning for the national park, they are a habitat with an extraordinarily high biodiversity.
On the first floor, the exhibition presents the alpine pastures of the National Park, man as a shaper of the alpine pastures and old breeds of farm animals. An alpine farmer tells virtually about her eventful life.
The upper floor is dedicated to the biodiversity on alpine pastures: It is about insects and spiders, typical alpine plants, animals of the night and the influence of humans on biodiversity. In addition, you will learn what the golden eagle has to do with alpine pastures and how the landscape has changed over decades.
