Next summer, my wife and I will be taking the Bernina Express from Tirano to Davos or Chur. We will arrive at either destination during the early afternoon. When we get to our destination, we would like to take a short (2 to 3 hours), easy, scenic hike that afternoon, have a nice dinner that night and then take another short hike the next morning before taking a train to Zurich.
Chur has what seems to be a neat medieval district but Davos is smaller and it seems you could be at the hiking trails within minutes of leaving your hotel.
My questions are: Which destination would be better suited for this tight schedule? Any recommended hotels? Will we have difficulty communicating because we don't speak German or Swiss German?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
