I used Chur in Switzerland as a base for a holiday around Switzerland. It is a ideal hub for trains. Ideal for the mountain trains ,like Bernina Express, and Glacier Express. The SBB train explores places like Davos, Klosters, St. Moritz, Arosa,and Tirano in Italy,also Liechtenstein by train and bus. A little timetable is available at Chur rail station. The mountain scenery around is stunning. The city of Chur is lovely, as i hope the photos show-------------.
