Graubunden is Switzerland’s largest and most easterly canton (administrative area) and has borders with Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein. Chur, the canton’s striking capital, is reputed to be the oldest town in Switzerland with evidence of settlement going back to 3500 BC. From here, you can pick up either the world-famous Glacier Express across to Brig and Zermatt or the less famous but equally stunning Bernina Express down to Tirano, across the Italian border.
This modern hotel is located just 350 metres from the railway station, making it the perfect base for a short stay in Chur. The hotel also offers a sauna and a steam room on site along with a pleasant bar lounge where you’ll find the perfect place to have a drink. Guests are also welcome to make use of the free high-speed Wi-Fi available throughout the property.
Romantik Hotel Stern
From its position in the very centre of town, the Hotel Stern is the ideal base for exploring. Rooms are decorated in a Swiss style with exposed beams and wooden panelling but also offer all modern creature comforts including free WiFi and digital television. On the ground floor of the hotel you will find an excellent restaurant with an impressive wine cellar.
