Cycling City Chur
Cycling City Chur
Chur lies on the internationally renowned Rhine Cycle Route and is a popular stopover on this route. Chur is also an ideal starting point for cycling tours, be it flat routes in the Rhine Valley or routes with more gradients in the beautiful mountain canton of Graubünden. But also the city itself offers a great infrastructure for cyclists. It offers attractive, safe and connected cycle paths and also a close-to-target, easily accessible, theft-proof and weatherproof bicycle station. A good overview of the paths and infrastructure for cyclists can be found in Chur's cycling city map.
But the city itself also has its charm: The car-free Old Town is a real gem; in many places there are cosy cafés and the selection of different restaurants is very large. There is a wide range of offers for shopping and you don't have to look far for the bike shop either. Also culturally you get your money's worth, if you want - and in the evening various bars and clubs lure into the alleys. Chur is a city in the Alps, but it is also characterized by a thoroughly Mediterranean ambience. Due to the low altitude, the temperatures are predominantly warm and the cycling season is long (if at all, the winter break is only very short, many locals cycle all year round).
The Chur train station is an important station of the Swiss Federal Railways and also the stop of the most important international railway lines from Germany and the Benelux countries, as well as the main station of the Rhaetian Railway. With the additional large post bus station at the same location, trains and post buses run from Chur in all directions every minute. Bicycles can also be easily transported by train or post bus.
