I have a dilemma...... my husband and I are in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Switzerland, and I hope to include a stop in the tiny village of Versam, the place from which my ancestors emigrated to America in the 1800's. It seems the scenic, must-do Glacier Express slides right past this village, but that would only provide a drive-by glimpse. Versam itself almost certainly isn't a tourist attraction, although there are a couple of choices for lodging in the village itself. It can be reached as an 8-mile day trip by post bus, regional train, or rental car from Chur. We are considering staying 2 nights in Chur -- visit Versam day 1 and return to Chur for the night, then do the Glacier Express to continue on to other destinations.
My questions for the community:
- Does anybody know anything about Versam?
- What's the best way to research the road conditions between Chur and Versam to determine if traveling by rental car from Chur is a good option?
- Is there an information source that describes what amount of snow is typical on Swiss roads throughout the year? Except for this trip to Versam, the remainder of our Switzerland itinerary would hopefully be done by train, and we have yet to research the best ticket package makes the most sense.
