Chur – The Alpine City

Do you prefer enchanting mountain scenery or the hustle and bustle of city life? The Alpine City of Chur offers you both. Narrow, winding streets and snow-capped mountains, modern shopping centres and pure, unadulterated nature. For Chur is quite simply the Alpine City. Abounding in urban zest for life, yet set amidst an enchanting Alpine world.
