20 knowledge stations about Irchel Park’s ecosystem

Around three kilometres in length, the nature trail leads visitors through the meadows, forests and mudflats on Irchel Campus. Twenty knowledge stations provide information about Irchel Park's ecosystem: from the wetlands with their amphibians, birds and microorganisms, to the dead wood as a habitat and the mountain ecology of Monte Diggelmann. All panels are bilingual in German and English.

Visitors can also become active themselves: Play games, take measurements or share pictures and observations. Join us!
