Sporty and active in summer
The Appenzellerland presents itself like a Garden of Eden for hikers and cyclists. High-altitude mountain trails, paths over bridges and breathtaking ridges challenge you. But also unobstructed circular paths, the barefoot path or the power trail enrich your holiday program. Gonten has an attractive 18-hole golf course, too.
Unique winter paradise
The Appenzellerland, a postcard idyll in the east of Switzerland, welcomes you with endless winter sports options. Whether in the family-friendly ski areas, on quiet snowshoe trails, on cross-country ski runs or unwound on the prepared winter hiking trails: The beauty of our landscape will entice you more than once.
Hardly any other Swiss region lives its customs as deeply rooted as the Appenzell. Throughout the year they celebrate the history and the faith of their ancestors: processions to the alpine pastures in spring, alpine dairymen’s festivals in summer, cattle-shows in autumn and Chlausezüüg (pyramid of Christmas sweets) at the turn of the year. Be a part of it!
