Chur is the "oldest town in Switzerland". A town in that sense is not necessarily quite a big village, but a village with certain rights granted by the empire.

    Michael, fabulous page about Chur. Unfortunately, I have only changed trains there yet. A proper visit is still on my list.

    I love engravings and frescoes on the houses in Germany and Switzerland so much! Walls with painted columns and stuccoworks are so beautiful. Thank you told me about a sticker for a car.

    I've never yet visited the old town of Chur because I always just changed trains there.
