Guided tours

The oldest city in Switzerland and important episcopal centre has many a story to tell. Centuries of history have shaped and left their mark on this place of transit. Immerse yourself in the past and experience Chur in a variety of ways. The most personal approach is, of course, with our highly knowledgeable tour guides. The most individual is under your own steam using our Audio Guide. And the most specific is by joining one of our specialised tours on such themes as water, the Willy Sand small power station or the powder mill. 

That being said, choosing is quite straighforward: no matter what you opt for, you will have made the right choice!
