Historical Site Chur


The Welschdörfli is where Chur's nightlife takes place. In Roman times there was a settlement here with residential buildings, workshops and a thermal bath.


A “pleasure mile” with a Roman past – that is the Welschdörfli. In Roman times, a settlement comprising living quarters, workshops and a thermal spring stood close to where bars now rub shoulders with cabarets. The area was actually inhabited much earlier; excavations on the Ackermann site have resulted in archaeological finds dating back to the Neolithic Age (5,000 –1,800 BC). Since 1986 the finds from Roman times have been protected by special buildings designed by Graubünden architect Peter Zumthor and are accessible by the general public.
