S

urrounded by the Alps, Chur makes a good base to explore the resorts in Graubünden. It is a cathedral city and capital of the canton with a beautiful medieval town centre and a history as a settlement going back several thousand years. Apart from the excellent fast service from Zürich, the trains out of Chur are all operated by the Rhaetian Railways (Rhätischen Bahn) and run on some of the most spectacular train journeys in the world, including the UNESCO World Heritage route to the Engadine, and the Arosa service, the trains of which actually trundle quaintly through the streets of Chur. The main bus terminal is above the train station, and has direct services to a number of ski resorts such as Lenzerheide and Flims/Laax. Local buses operate from outside the station. Although visitors might be tempted to travel to some of the world class resorts nearby, Chur itself has a small but respectable ski area, Chur Brambüesch, actually served by lifts from within the centre of the town.
