    Fountain in the main square
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The old town of Chur is filled with lots of interesting squares. As you wander the narrow streets you will come across said squares, most with fountains and/or unusual statues.

    The main square is surrounded by colourful buildings and has an amusing fountain. This square looks like a nice place to relax with a drink, though when we visited (on a Sunday afternoon) everything seemed to be shut, and the weather wasn't alfresco friendly anyway.

    The square outside the Cathedral has a fountain and a shady Oak tree. We also had a wander in the Fontanapark, which is a leafy square/park which is home to three small fountains and some pretty gardens.

    Fondest memory: My favourite statue that we came across was a rather rotund person who stands in the middle of a garden under a large tree.

    Isn't Swiss Currency Pretty?

    by mydreamquest Written Oct 16, 2004
    Swiss Francs

    Favorite thing: I can understand why the Swiss opted not to use the Euro. The Swiss Franc is so pretty, it's hard to spend sometime. This was taken from an ATM machine in the resort town of Chur located in the Swiss Alps.

    Fondest memory: The Currency and the beauty of Chur, how the mountains surround the city like a chorus.

    Fondest memory: 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!

    Fondest memory: The marroni stall right next to the train station. Nice warm chestnuts when you are waiting for your train! And the man who operates the store is very friendly and will pick up a chat anytime. Kept patronising the stall everytime we went to Chur...this is my second fondest memory in Chur apart from seeing this guy (sunglasses, hair dyed blonde) who looked like Brad Pitt but more handsome ;-)

    Favorite thing: Stay in Seewis, it´s a bit off the beaten path! Nice scenery and very old houses. I loved the greens around when I was a kid, and all the little wells, with icecold water to play around!
