  • About this holiday

    The four star Romantik Hotel Stern in Chur is a luxury hotel housed in a timeless townhouse near the city’s Old Town. In the light guestrooms and in the traditional ‘stubli’ restaurant, authentic Swiss style prevails, giving guests a taste of real Switzerland in this beautiful location. Spend a night or two here as you move from Zurich towards St Moritz, or the provinces of Ticino and Valais, as part of a grand Swiss rail journey.

    Our opinion

    The Romantik Hotel Stern has perfected the balance between Swiss authentic style and modern comforts, offering chic accommodation in the historic town of Chur.

    Hotel description

    The Romantik Hotel Stern is a four star hotel situated in the heart of Switzerland’s oldest town, Chur. The white stone of the ground floor exterior is topped by the pink stucco of the upper floors, which enhances the building’s appearance as a traditional and attractive town house. Flags fly below the first floor windows, which, like those of the second and third floors, are framed by white wooden shutters, and a single wrought iron balcony acts as the centrepiece. The arched glass front door welcomes you in with the warm glow of the lamps inside. In the lobby, authentic Swiss style can be seen in the wooden panelled ceilings, the wooden doors, and the intricately painted white-washed archways that lead into the restaurant and beyond. The Veltliner Weinstuben is modelled on the Swiss ‘stubli,’ with all wooden panelled walls, lantern ceiling lamps, old-fashioned clocks, rugs of deep reds and purples, and beautifully carved furniture. The waiters here dress in accordance to tradition, and serve well-known, popular Swiss dishes, as well as little-known delicacies. After dinner, you can relax in the cosy fireside corner, in plush armchairs, beside artworks of local scenes. Guestrooms at the Romantik Hotel Stern are light, bright, and airy, with pale wood furnishings that have been specially crafted to fit the exact shape of each individual room and to compliment the views outside your window. Hints of other natural colours, such as pastel yellows and greens, make these rooms homely and warm. Higher room categories feature brighter, richer colours, such as deep purple, as well as sitting areas for enjoying a private drink. The overall experience of guests at the Romantik Hotel Stern is one of maximum comfort, with excellent, attentive service, and a warm home-from-home feel that still channels the best of Swiss style and elegance. We would highly recommend staying at the Romantik Hotel Stern in Chur as part of a luxury Swiss rail touring holiday.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    As well as the oldest town in Switzerland, Chur is one of the warmest. The temperature, combined with the surrounding landscape, make Chur the perfect destination for those wanting to spend their time outside. The area around Chur holds six of the most beautiful golf courses in Switzerland, well-suited to the beginner who would like to relax and enjoy the views, as well as the seasoned professional. The mountain regions of Arosa, Lenzerheide, and Flims provide challenging and scenic hiking routes, and the Rhine Route and Grisons Route are ideal for long cycle rides. In the town of Chur itself, visit the Grisons Art Museum, which displays works by local artists such as Segantini, Giacometti, and Kirchner. The Rhaetian Museum has archaeological, cultural, historical, and folkloristic artefacts dating from prehistory right up to the 20th century. While in Chur, check the listings at the Municipal Theatre to see which visiting productions they are hosting, and consider stopping here for an infectious, cultural evening. Chur’s greatest highlight, however, might be the peace and quiet of the pedestrianised old town, which still retains all of its charm and tranquillity.

    Sports nearby

    Walking, climbing, hiking, and cycling in the mountains.

    Children

    Children are welcome at the Romantik Hotel Stern; we would recommend that families book the ‘Appartement’ rooms for the benefit of an additional bedroom.
