Tirano - Chur- Hotel near Zurich Airport

If we take the Bernina Express from Tirano to Chur, is it possible at approx. 1900 to connect with another train to get us to an overnight hotel stay in Zurich Airport area for early morning departure ? Would we ride the train from Chur all the way to the Airport Station (under the airport ) ? Many thanks !

No problem at all, but you have to change trains at Zurich HB (main station). See www.rail.ch for the schedule.

Thank you so much ! This gives us the confidence to make reservations, although I must admit that we're now wondering if we should stay in Chur and enjoy the culture and food, leaving from Zurich at a less hectic pace the following day! Do you think there would be enough little shops, eateries, people-watching, scenery, etc . to make it worth staying the extra day ?

Hi, Chur is the oldest settlement in Switzerland and a great place for a day or longer! You could stay overnight there and take a mid afternoon train to Zurich. There is a hotel connected to the terminal building (no noise) - it's the Radisson Blu and you can just get up and walk over to the check-in desk. Another hotel near the airport is the Movenpick and they have a shuttle bus that takes about the same amount of time as walking over from the Radisson. If you need to check in later than about 7:30AM, you can stay in central Zurich because it's only 12 minutes by train or 20 minutes by taxi to the airport (train's a lot less expensive!).

I like the Hotel Wellenberg in the Old Town or the Adler across the street from the Wellenberg. Both are a 12-`15 minute walk to the main station.

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you need more information.

I stayed in Chur because it was much less expensive than hotels in Zurich. Post Hotel, and had a wonderful meal of cabons at a nearby restaurant called Stern. Very charming community.

I had no trouble getting to the Zurich airport from Chur by train in the morning, to catch a plane to Berlin.
