Chur was a pleasant surprise. We were only staying there as it was a convenient place to board the Glacier Express to Zermatt the following day, but we found a lovely old town to explore, and some very tasty pizza!

Located in a valley, surrounded by mountains (which were shrouded in clouds during our visit), Chur (pronounced more like Core) is the oldest town in Switzerland, with a history dating back 5,000 years.

    I think if I ever get back to Switzerland, we will use the train, driving was a bit of an adventure! Nice page Sue :-)

    Gorgeous little page here. I only once changed trains in Chur, but I would be interested to have a proper view at the town. I am surprised to read that the hotel staff twice mixed up your room. Usually Swiss people are even more exact than us Germans.

    Nice pics and tips, Sue. We had lunch on the glacier express after stopping here as well. Hope all is well with you.
