Cologne to Chur
via Basel and Zurich

Sunday, 27th September2015
Cologne station
Our train to Chur (via Zurich) was running 10 minutes late!
The Rhine - We've been on a ship like that looking at the trains along this stretch.
The Lorelei is a large rock on the Rhine. We were lucky to get this photo from the fast moving train. Furthermore, it's a nicer photo than the one we took from a ship the previous year (the sunshine certainly helped)
Crossing the border into Switzerland, we had just over an hour to kill in Basel before the (same) train departed.
Bruce & Ros sought and found refreshments!
Back on the train for a scenic ride to Chur
Bruce liked the look of Chur already.
"The friendly, 3 star Hotel Freieck in Chur is situated in the heart of the Old Town. The hotel features a renovated vaulted restaurant, a cosy bar and a Winter garden café. Rooms are furnished in traditional Swiss style".
