Hi,

I looked at the timetable for trains from Zurich to Chur and they seem to go quite often.

It doesn't seem like there are a lot of trains that allow you to bring your bike.
We will be flying with our bikes in bags.

Should we keep the bikes in the bags for the train ride from Zurich to Chur? Or is it easy enough to get our bikes on the train?

Also, its seems like the train station is at the airport so it should be pretty easy for us to carry the bags to the train?

If we do build our bikes at the airport, are there lockers available to leave the bags in for the three weeks we'll be in Switzerland?
thanks!

Hello sharonbader, and welcome to the forum! Most trains allow you to bring along your bike. A (reduced) ticket has to be purchased in that case. However, if you can fold your bikes and hold them as hand luggage, you can bring them along for free. Further information can be found at the Swiss railways website.

Yes, the Zurich Airport railway station is close to the actual airport, so you should manage to carry your bikes there. And lockers are available indeed.
