Culinary tour: Chur Millstreams Trail

Leisurely walk along the mill streams in Chur. Including a 3-course menu in three different restaurants along the route.

Anyone walking through Chur often hears the water gurgling beneath them or sees small streams rushing past. No, it is not a sewer, it is the Chur mill streams. Since Chur itself has no water of its own and still obtains its drinking water from sources of value, the mill streams were the lifelines of the city for centuries. The Plessur as the dominant river in the landscape flows through Chur, but it has much of a wild mountain stream on which neither goods could be transported nor mills could be driven. Therefore, the construction of the mill streams was the prerequisite for a regulated water supply of Chur. They provided the city with service water and hydroelectric power and enabled industry and the population to survive in Chur. Did you know, for example, that the Chur Quadereis was produced annually with the water of the Mühlbach or that the repair workshop of the SBB was powered by the same water? Start your culinary tour along the two Chur mill streams, through winding alleys and the beautiful old town. Learn about the history and significance of Chur's millstreams during your tour through the City E-GUIDE.

Thus, the arrival and return journey to the start and end point in the Obere Au is included. Likewise, you are flexible enough during the entire tour, in case the legs are tired.
