Chur

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

“Very well organised trip, and certainly lived up to its promise to show outstanding Swiss scenery. Travel on Swiss railways was easy, and comfortable, and the hotel accommodation was generally very good. The only reason we haven't given 5 stars is that we kept that rating for the Rocky Mountaineer trip which we did in 2019.

“We enjoyed our holiday with Glacier express for various reasons. The organisation was good though the first days travel was too long. We only had 8 couples on our trip including the tour manager, which seemed a good amount.

“A very enjoyable and well-packaged holiday, with an experienced and very approachable tour manager. Excellent traditional hotels. Extremely good value for money. But …. The group was FAR too large for a "First Class" holiday - and that would stop me trusting GRJ's descriptions in future !! Too many changes to the published itinerary. Not a good idea to have long and tiring day trips on either the first day in Switzerland or the last day before travel home.
