The multimedia exhibition was created as part of the #gkb2020 150th anniversary project of Graubündner Kantonalbank and was opened on 7 October 2020, following a two-year development phase. The aim is to illustrate the importance of water in all of its forms. The Virtual Reality Glacier Experience shows quite plainly the impacts of climate change.


By funding the “MortAlive” preliminary project and implementing the VR Glacier Experience, the GKB is investing in glacier research and awareness.


In the fabulous mountain landscape of Corvatsch, Diavolezza and Lagalb, guests benefit from a 365-day mountain railway service. The VR Glacier Experience is located at the Diavolezza valley station.
