Chur is amazing given the fact it is the oldest (5000 years) settlement in Switzerland. The view high above, right from downtown Chur is mandatory to view from above. There were a few restaurants... more »
Great two-part ride, firstly near-vertical in a large group gondola and then secondly in small cars to the top. Not cheap but half-price with a Swiss Rail Pass. Not a terrific amount to do at the top.... more »
Waking to snow lightly dancing down, and heavy clouds not just over the mountains but almost down to the ground we took a leisurely breakfast in the hope of them lifting somewhat. It was not to be, we took the cable cars up to Brambrüesch seeing little but the snow laden trees beside us. At the top we walked around the winterweg. After great debate as to which was the starting point of the circular walk we headed off in what we thought was the right direction. The dry snow falling thickly we crunched our way through very deep snow, through the trees and up the increasing incline. Snowballs, snowfalls from the heavily laden branches, and hilarity when one of us ended up in snow deeper than we expected as we walked. Visibility was poor but we could still see far enough to know we were on the pathway and admire the beauty of the trees and some of the landscape.
If you're in Chur, this is worth your time. Make sure to check when the gondola is open. The restaurant at the top on the lower left made the best burger I've had in Switzerland so far. The trails are great for a day out, and if you hike far enough, you can take a mountain coaster down. Ask about that at the info office to see if it is open.
