Chur Tourism - The Swiss Alpine City, Graubünden

Alpine City products

The Alpine City is agreeable and genuine, just like the products bearing the Capricorn symbol of the Graubünden ibex. In collaboration with local producers, a whole range of regional products are currently being created. Alpine City tart, Alpine City chocolate and an Alpine City bottle with a schnapps glass are popular souvenirs and take-home gifts from the Alpine City.

The production of the Alpine City products is supervised by alpinavera. This ensures that sufficient local ingredients are also used. The products can be bought in the shops in the Old Town of Chur.

Alpine City bottle with schnapps glass

When glass-blower Muja goes for a walk along the Rhine, he does not just do this for pure enjoyment, but also to collect things. Such as, for example, stones that have been shaped and polished in the course of thousands of years. These he fixes onto Alpine City bottles and schnapps glasses which, adorned with the Capricorn symbol, he then sells to be filled with local specialities. For example, Chur Röteli cherry liqueur from the former Ullius drugstore.

Alpine city cheese (Mutschli)

This cheese is anything but an ordinary cheese! The combination of fresh Churer goat's milk, roasted hemp seeds and dried hemp blossoms is convincing all along the line. 

The Mutschli is the result of a collaboration between Chur Tourism and the Hosang'sche Stiftung Plankis, where the cheese is produced with goat's milk from their own farm. Hemp seeds and hemp flowers come from AlpenPionier in Tschiertschen.
