Travel Tips for Chur
My fondest memory of Seewis was the tiny road, that lead up the moutain and the postbus always had to blow his horn in front of the corners, so that the cars knew that there were a bus around the edge! I guess it´s still the same there! Well maybe the buses are modern now!
Do not forget to taste the local golden water... Calanda Beer!
Cheers = Viva in Rumantsch. Rhaeto-Rumantsch (Rumantsch) is spoken by 1% of the Swiss population and only in Graubünden. Rumantsch, like Italian and French, is a language with Latin roots.
You never know
This is one of the graves in the Cathedral cemetery ("Must See" tip). You may or may not recognize the name, Karl Barth. He is one of the most influential Protestant theologians of the 20th Century. I was startled to see his grave until I realized that we were in a Catholic cemetery and this is not the one I thought. It does illustrate, however, my contention that you can find wonderful surprises sometimes by just wandering around places not mentioned in the tourist guides. Whoever Mr. Barth is, his family does a lovely job of maitaining his grave.
Final call for the return trip.
Be warned to note the time the train leaves for the journey back to Chur and remember how to get back to the Station.
The journey time is about 4 hours for each part of the trip and two hours at Tirano allows for a chance to visit and to eat.
the townhall of Chur was built in a special style that is quite unique and did not really show its real age to me. And so I was surprised to read that this building was rebuilt after a fire in 1464, so it must be at least 550 years old.
