Graubünden is considered one of the best mountain bike regions in the Alps. So it comes as no surprise that the capital city of Chur also has a top offer for mountain bikers.
Varied bike tours lead directly from the city onto the trails. The local mountain Brambrüesch is the starting point for the freeride trails in the Alpenbikepark Chur as well as several Enduro variants. And due to the low altitude, the biking season starts very early and often lasts into the winter.
But there is more: Due to the central location and the exceptionally good traffic connections, countless bike tours and well-known bike destinations in Graubünden are within easy day-trip distance. And you don't have to look long for suitable offers. That's why Chur is the ideal bike hub. Here you can comfortably combine the flair of the Alpine City with the variety of mountain biking in Graubünden. A combination that has it all. Welcome to the bike city Chur!
It is the combination of trail experience and urban flair that makes Chur such an exciting bike hub. The car-free Old Town is a real gem; in many places there are cosy cafés and the selection of different restaurants is very large. There is a wide range of offers for shopping and you don't have to look far for the bike shop either. Also culturally you get your money's worth, if you want - and in the evening various bars and clubs lure into the alleys. Chur is a city in the Alps, but it is also characterized by a thoroughly Mediterranean ambience. Due to the low altitude, the temperatures are predominantly warm and the bike season lasts correspondingly long.
With the main station of the Rhaetian Railway and the large post bus station at the same location, trains and post buses run every minute from Chur in all directions and take bikers and bikes on the trails in Graubünden - and back again.
Bike champion Nino Schurter also appreciates his home town Chur:
