There are 2 or 3 great squares in Chur and this one is probably the prettiest. Odd shape but full of beautiful and colourful buildings

Somewhere to come for peace and quiet. Having come from Italy the same day, the contrast was huge. This town square is peaceful and beautiful. Incredibly clean and tidy and something locals should be proud of. You'll struggle to miss it if you head into...More

The Arcas Square was smaller than St. Martin's but still opined that the place was calm and relaxing with a little fountain in the middle and surrounded by beautiful houses including nice cafes. Just sat down and watch people passed by.

A great place for a coffee and cake. It's in the old part of Chur and if you like taking photos, you need to go.

Visited Arcasplatz in the morning and was a bit underwhelmed. I had expected a "happening" place - perhaps it is one in the evenings! Charming , like the rest of the old town, and worth a small round if you are in the neighbourhood
