Transfers and journeys to Appenzell

Appenzellerland: living traditions

 In no other region is everyday life so steeped in its historical culture, traditional crafts and hospitality as in the green hills of the Appenzellerland. Throughout the year the people of Appenzell celebrate and commemorate joyful and sorrowful moments in the history of their forefathers and mothers. With alpine cattle drives in the spring, herdsmen's festivals in the summer, cattle shows in the autumn and the «Chlausezüüg» Christmas decoration at the end of the year, traditions and customs are maintained and cultivated here throughout the entire year. These are not showpieces put on for visitors, but an expression of the local people's love of their homeland. The Appenzellerland and its customs are a combination that continuously attracts and enchants outsiders


The 69,500 innovative inhabitants of the Appenzellerland are not only endowed with a sharp sense of business, but also with an innate appreciation of art and culture. Scarcely any other place nurtures its living, thriving traditions of painting, music, and language as do the two half-cantons, located on 416 square kilometres in the eastern tip of Switzerland.
