What people are saying about Chur

The experience was very nice and the landscapes are breathtaking. We arrived in St. Moritz at 12 and at 14.48 we had the Bernina train, perhaps a little short time to eat and do things calmly, even if the city is not very big. The Bernina train is very beautiful up to Alpe Grunn then in fact the landscape is monotonous and I expected better from the helical viaduct, I probably did not appreciate it because the meadows were not yet green.
