    Chur - and alpine city
    The cultural advantages of the alpine city! The important episcopal city is also the center of Rhaeto-Romanic Switzerland and is considered the oldest city in the Confederation. Particularly worth seeing are the episcopal castle, the three-aisled cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption and the well-preserved buildings in Chur's old town. You can find out a lot of interesting facts about the history and culture of the Alpine city on a guided city tour or individually with the audio guide. Thanks to the title of “Graubünden's main town”, visitors to the cantonal museums are welcomed by three tireless collectors of our Alpine culture.
    Mediterranean flair
    The car-free old town and the winding streets invite you to go shopping. Connoisseurs appreciate the numerous cozy cafés and over 130 restaurants, which, in addition to the mild climate, give the city a noticeably Mediterranean ambience.

    For me, the old town of Chur is definitely a highlight of Chur. The narrow streets where the sun shines are simply wonderful. The shops in Chur's old town are also original: from small cafés to crystal shops to opticians, everything is there. In addition, the old town of Chur is always quiet. If you are in the old town of Chur, you should definitely visit the Arcas-Platz.

    That's right, even in early July. The red information boards on the old walls are great, you can learn something about the history of the city directly

    Numerous boutiques, specialty shops and cozy cafés make Chur's old town an enjoyable shopping experience away from the hustle and bustle. In the winding streets of the old town there are a number of shopping gems just waiting to be discovered. And thanks to the numerous cafés and restaurants, you can take a wonderful break and recharge your batteries - be it with a coffee or an entire menu.
