Bever - The gateway to the Engadin floodplain

An alpine dream of vitality

Innauen
The revitalized river landscape of the Inn near Bever feels a bit like Canada.

Where once there was a boring canal, a lively river now bubbles between gravel and sand banks through floodplain forests. Since September 2020, one of the most beautiful revitalization projects in Switzerland can be visited in Bever.

Who would have thought that the glorious Engadin nature could become even more beautiful? Yet, the revitalisation of the Inn’s riparian zone did in fact add a unique charm to its attractiveness.

Innauen - Natural monument

Vastness, water, desert – that is the newly designed river landscape of the Inn.

The trigger was the dams being in need of rehabilitation. But instead of building something artificial out of nature, here, nature was created again out of something artificial. Since the end of 2020, the work has been completed; in the meantime, the Inn River has taken over construction and continues to shape the landscape with its high and wild waters. People who made this multi-million francs project " Inn Revitalization near Bever" possible share their experiences with visitors today. They tell stories about deer and ermine, report on the river heron and kingfisher, show gentians and laurel willows, and recall the highly complex construction period.

It is fascinating how quickly nature has returned to the newly created floodplain! A walk along the river is worthwhile, also for families with children.

Biodiversity hotspot

"Animal of the Year," rare birds, El Dorado for botanists, Fischer's Fritz - everything can be found here at the Inn. Almost half of all Swiss animals and plants can be found in the floodplain. Hardly any other place is so rich in nature. Step inside. Sit down on the river bank. Linger in the shade of an old larch tree. Photograph the flowers or the play of light and shadow on the river. There is so much to discover!
