Chur : arrival, orientation and information
Home > Tourist Guide > Table of contents > Graubuenden > Chur and around > Arrival

Chur’s train and huge postbus station is at the head of Bahnhofstrasse, five minutes northwest of the central Postplatz, on the northern edge of the Old Town. As well as maps, the tourist office at Grabenstrasse 5, 100m east of Postplatz (Mon 1.30–6pm, Tues–Fri 8.30am–noon & 1.30–6pm, Sat 9am–noon; 081/252 18 18, www.churtourismus.ch), has pamphlets explaining the red and green footprints painted on Chur’s pavements, which show the routes of self-guided walking tours: the longer red route around the eastern Old Town and south to the cathedral is the better of the two. The tourist office also offers its own excellent guided tour of the town, starting from the Rathaus on Poststrasse (April–Oct Wed 2pm; Fr.6).

All overnight visitors get a book of discount vouchers covering a wealth of shops and services, including money off a postbus journey, and a free return train journey back to Chur from Arosa, Ilanz, Küblis or Tiefencastel.
