Take a peek into the history of Chur at Rathaus, a town hall housing council meetings and containing the city archive. Destroyed in a large fire in 1464, the structure was rebuilt and renovated several times, maintaining its original Gothic style of architecture. As you stroll the streets of the old town, stop by and admire the history-steeped building with red and white window shutters, or explore the richly decorated interior to see rooms furnished with items from different periods of Switzerland's history.
