Time travel

Once upon a time, the Swiss community of  Mulegns was a post station.

Between Chur and Saint Moritz, horse-drawn carriages took 15 hours and several stops to climb the steep valley.

One of these stops was at Mulegns, at the Posthotel “Löwe”.

But then the train tracks in a parallel valley opened a new and faster way. The horse carriage business bankrupted…

… and Mulegns got cut off the main stream.

Nevertheless, the Posthotel “Löwe” is still there and it is open… and it is definitely worth a visit!

      Thank you Jim! I am glad the pictures gave you the feelings I had there. The hotel might be renewed sooner or later, when they will find the money. So, these pictures are kind of some historical documentation now.
