Exploring Chur
and a cable car ride to Brambruesch

Monday, 28th September2015
Ros and Adrian went off to do a guided walk. We decided to simply stroll and see things for ourselves at our own pace.
The train to Arosa runs through the streets of Chur!
The Cathedral. We were treated to an impromptu organ recital which was lovely. Geoff took this short video.
A spur of the moment decision to go up the mountain on the cable car.
Railway enthusiasts will spot that Chur station has mixed guage trains!
After all that, Bruce wanted to try that chocolaterie he had spotted yesterday as we got off the train.
Bruce goes for the Sacher Torte!
A couple of hours later, we were ready to eat again! Dinner had not been arranged for us this evening, so we got a recommendation and went with it. Here is the restaurant we went to (photo taken the next day).
We enjoyed the evening and the traditional Swiss meal. We got chatting to a group of "foodie" diners at the adjacent table, because they were really enjoying their meal too; an even more traditionally seasonal Swiss dining experience of Venison. As we were leaving, one of the men gave us his business card. It turned out that he owned the bakery at the station and on the back he had written an instruction to his staff to given us free coffees the next day! We were very pleased, as it would give us a good start to our train journey in the morning.
Ros's flaming dessert was one of the highlights.
