Intro

Chur is the oldest town in Switzerland and has a settlement history of over 5,000 years. The historic Old Town is very much worth a visit and is completely car-free. It offers a surprisingly large range of cultural activities, shopping, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Enjoy the cultural and culinary amenities of this Alpine town! Especially worthy of note are the Bishop's Palace and the triple-naved cathedral of Sankt Maria Himmelfahrt. Whether you're after cathedral treasure, Giacometti, biodiversity or souvenirs, Graubünden's capital, with its three regional museums and over 500 shops, offers something to do in any weather.

Chur has one of the best preserved Old Towns in Switzerland. Over the past 20 years it has been renovated continuously and is now free of traffic. Red signs direct the visitor to the most beautiful sights, squares and alleys. Enjoy sightseeing and themed tours around Chur and learn all about the history and culture of Graubünden’s capital. The audio guide available also enables you to do this individually and in 13 languages. The Old Town often forms the backdrop for colourful markets – for example, every Saturday morning from May to October there is the weekly market (farmers' market) while the Christmas market is held at the end of the year. With parking in the immediate vicinity and numerous cosy cafés, the Old Town with its winding alleys provides a wonderful ambience for a leisurely shopping stroll around the many boutiques and shops.
