LGKMYBernina express was my Swiss trip highlight back in Nov 2019. From Zurich we headed to Chur. During winter, train terminates in Tirano (Italy) and not Lugano. the journey from Chur-Tirano-Chur) took a whole day. Free ride using Swiss travel pass but really worth it to pay extra for panoramic train (Chur-Tirano leg)
四海浩荡When I went, it was 7:30 in the evening, and the surrounding shops were almost closed. It's the day when the mother of heaven in Europe ascends to heaven again, Europe has three days off for almost those days! Last year we were in Munich and sighed that there were so few people and no money was made. It turned out to be a religious holiday :)
莲子99Liechtenstein has no museums or places like that, but Europe is a real mecca for paintings, with so many paintings from the past, and this small country has some excellent works, and the galleries are surprisingly large, larger than the government agencies.
四海浩荡Traveling in Europe, there are churches everywhere. Chur is one of the oldest towns in Switzerland. Of course, this church is also very meaningful. It is similar to Central Europeans. I won’t upload the picture. It’s pretty. It’s also very convenient to go to Liechtenstein from here. The train reverses the bus and it takes an hour (including 15 minutes to wait for the bus).

The Chur Old Town is very pretty, with a lot of old and interesting buildings, shops and restaurants. It is mostly a no-car zone. We love the old town of Chur, it is such a nice place to wander and window shop, take in the parish church and then walk up to the cathedral. There are plenty of places to eat and drink. Just five minutes walk up the gentle hill from the main station through the main shopping street.
If you have limited time in Switzerland, opt for Bernina Express trip to enjoy spectacular landscapes Swiss Alps up close. Bernina Express is included in Swiss Travel Pass (you have to pay extra for panoramic train, but it worth every penny). The journey from Chur, Switzerland to Tirano, Italy and back to Chur will take the whole day.
The Albula-Bernina railway line was built in the early 20th century and is one of the world-famous narrow-gauge railways. It travels through the Alps along the way. It is an important alpine railway line that has been preserved so far, at a high altitude and with the world. The same kind of railway line has a larger gap, which is famous for its architectural structure, technical achievements and integration with the environment. The

2019 First Travel Pic
I like to see Cul's focus on the commanding heights of the small town of Brambresch. Although it is just a cable car station on the hill behind Chur, in the heart of the Chur people, it is a good place for weekend sports and fitness.
Even in this rainy day, you can see mountain bikers who are covered in mud and fly down the mountain. You can also see the bicycles specially prepared for mountain bikers in the mountains. Facilities. Hiking enthusiasts can hike from the Brambresch cable car station to the mountain lakes not far away, which takes about 1.5 hours each way.
The cable car, in addition to bicycle lovers directly dive down the mountain, there are many locals along the mountain trails to the mountains. Flowers of various colors spread throughout the valley. The mountain lodge in the distance is looming over the clouds, giving me the illusion of being in a fairyland. Everything here cannot be described by the word "beauty"!
Swiss people are so passionate about life, each family design their own small courtyard, it is really the perfect combination of man and nature. Imagine if you have such a mountain hut, have coffee in the yard, look at the newspaper, and look up from time to time to see the beauty of the distance. Its so pleasant.
When the cable car went down the mountain to leave here, I didn't expect the sky to slowly clear. The blue sky, the white clouds, the green land, and the alpine towns that are faintly visible in the distance, everything is so beautiful.
Chur, in my impression, is associated with the white nouns of ski resort, snow world, winter paradise, but this time it was really early spring, I thought it was just passing by, but I did not expect to give me an accident. Surprise.
This important railway hub in eastern Switzerland does not look as beautiful as other Swiss towns, but when it comes to the old town, the squares, churches and old streets washed by the rain are so charming.
Under the drizzle, sporadic past a few tourists, less daily excitement, more weekends of ease. The mountain behind it is surrounded by sparse clouds, close your eyes and take a breath of fresh air, feel the silence of this moment, and think that time is still here, so that I can always stay away from the troubles.
