If you are in the old town, it is worrth a detour up to the cathedral, althought the route we took required uss climbing steps. However, at the top we noticed it could be accessed by car.

A beautiful Cathedral well worth the walk high up in the old town. Some lovely views over Chur from the adjacent area.

Begun in 1151 and not completed until the 13th century, the cathedral is a beautiful place to visit. The stained glass windows are spectacular! The alter and pulpit are also lovely.
