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!
