Escorted Rail Tours to Chur

Switzerland's oldest town

Chur is the oldest town in Switzerland and is ideally placed for exploring the south-east of the country thanks to its excellent transport links. Whilst it is the end of the line for the SBB main line trains, it is also a key centre for the metre-gauge Rhatische Bahn that runs through to St Moritz, Davos, Arosa and into Italy, as well as the Glacier Express line to Disentis. The Tourist Office is located at the station near the bottom of the escalator at the main entrance.

The 12th century cathedral is well worth a visit, combining Gothic and Romanesque styles. The old town is grouped around Martinsplatz with the arcaded Rathaus (Town Hall) dating from 1464 and St Martins Reformed parish church dating from 1491 to 1526. There are many pedestrianised streets to explore through the old town with a good selection of shops, or why not enrich your mind at one of Chur's many museums?

Glacier Express in Winter
Ms C Hill
“A wonderful full itinerary, well organized and planned. The hotels were a great contrast...one in a town and one in a small village of typically Swiss wooden houses surrounded by mountains, and only accessible by train. The country was expensive, but the provided meals were good and local. Our group was friendly and a good mix of pleasant people, who all got on well. The weather couldn’t have been better....five days of sunshine for all the trips on the glacier and Bernina Express, so amazing views, then snow on the last day for a wonderful woodland walk from the chairlift above our last hotel. One of the best tours we have had with Great Rail.

Ever considered having a romantic meal in an altogether different setting? Set aside the notion of a slap-up dinner in a chain-pub, or an over-expensive boutique restaurant in the city centre, why not do it by rail?
