Graubünden’s capital is the oldest city in Switzerland and one of the warmest thanks to the Foehn. Stroll along the cobblestones of the picturesque Old Town and breathe in the history of the buildings and alleys. Visit the Episcopal, see the award-winning art museum but don’t be frightened by Benedict Fontana's martial monument. Down from his pedestal with his sword, the Schlachtenheld shows you the way south to where the hawkers once sought their way across the Graubünden passes to Italy. Directly out of the city you can take a cable car up to Brambrüesch. Up there, you’ll find a plateau with hiking trails and wonderful panoramic views over the entire Rhine Valley. If you are brave enough, you can go back down to the city on a mountain bike via the downhill track. In winter you are welcomed by ski slopes, toboggan run, winter hiking and snowhoeing trails on Chur's local mountain.
Chur is terminal station of the SBB (Swiss Federal Railways) and the most important international railway lines from Germany and the Benelux countries. The city has excellent high-speed train connections from Zurich/Airport and northern countries. From the north, Chur is connected to international rail traffic via Basel and Zurich by the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). You can reach Chur directly from Hamburg via Frankfurt and Freiburg by ICE train without changing trains.
Chur is easily accessible by car. The city lies in the middle of the transalpine route between Munich and Milan and has two motorway exits on the A3/A13 (Chur Nord / Chur Süd). From both you are within a few minutes in the centre of the Alpine City. Use the route planner to find out the shortest and fastest route before departure.
