Quaint and quiet street on a Sunday

Wandering around, we came across Obere Gasse in Chur old town. Well worth a meander if you are in town.

Just a short distance from the rail station lies the older part of Chur with its narrow flag festooned streets. Several nice looking eating houses and bars. Window shopping seemed a local pastime in the evenings. We very much enjoyed our brief stay.

Here you can visit all day long those nice little shops and cafes. Close to museums and churches and the cathedral, which is just very old and interesting.

When we were there we ate at Da Mama ---- a nice little cafe & restaurant with limited menu (but excellent food & good price) in Oberegasse 35. Also when we were there,... More

The Old Town is beautiful and clean with interesting architecture. There were a number of small and interesting shops that were not big name franchises.

the Obere Gasse has a lot of boutique kind of shops and restaurants/Cafe. The area is not accessible for cars so a nice walk checking out the stores and the very old buildings. In the summer on Saturday morning is the local market that sells products from the area not to be missed. Also around Christmas the Christmas Market is... More
