Visit Appenzell in 2024

Appenzell sits in the northeastern part of Switzerland, offering a feast for the senses in every season. Known for its colorful houses adorned with frescoes, intricate woodwork, and stunning alpine vistas, the town is an idyllic setting for both relaxation and exploration. It's the capital of the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden, one of the smallest and most traditional cantons in Switzerland.
The town is renowned for its cheese—Appenzeller cheese, to be exact—which has been produced in the region for over 700 years. Here, you can not only sample this delectable item but even visit its production sites. Beyond cheese, Appenzell has a rich tradition in textiles, with lace and embroidery being significant trades in the past.
One of the town's most interesting traditions is the annual Landsgemeinde, an open-air assembly where local men vote by raising their hands. This direct democratic process has been in practice for hundreds of years and attracts visitors keen to observe Swiss political tradition at its most raw and authentic.
The surrounding Appenzell Alps provide endless opportunities for hiking, skiing, and mountain biking, with trails suitable for all levels. Cable cars take you up into the mountains for unparalleled views and exciting adventures.
