Is this where time stands still ?


Is this where time stands still? In the land of the Appenzell people, with their beautiful costumes, pretty houses, traditional cattle drives and unique new year’s «Silvesterkläuse», the terms «tradition» and «custom» are not just empty words. Here they are an integral part of the whole community and are passionately maintained. Stroll at your leisure through the main street of Appenzell. Marvel at the outstanding views over the Appenzell Vorderland and the stunning Lake Constance. Hike over the gentle hills of the Mittelland or visit the Hinterland, a stronghold of Appenzell customs and traditions and experience a feeling of timelessness.

Keep your eyes and ears open while you explore our little paradise. Discover this pearl and its people who are so independent yet forward-looking, whose roots are firmly anchored in Appenzellerland yet have the confidence to demonstrate their ideas and visions to the whole world. You’ll never forget your stay in Appenzellerland, where time is still a valuable commodity that people enjoy taking and giving. Why don’t you, too, take time for a visit to Appenzellerland? It’s worth it!

Appenzellerland – the inspirational setting for seminars and conferences.


S o u r c e o f w e l l b e i n g . The Appenzellerland is a source of wellbeing. Long before the wellness trend started, guests from all over the world were coming to refresh their spirits at the rushing waterfalls, in the mud-baths and on the lofty heights. The early «tourist operators» in the most Swiss of all Swiss cantons proved to be trend-setters. In the 19 th and 20 th centuries, whey cures were extremely successful and a popular social pastime. Whey, considered a useless by-product of cheese-making, is currently making a remarkable comeback. Right up to the present day you will find the original relaxing leisure activities, although time hasn’t stood still here, either. And so today’s spa guests can find interesting contrasts between the culture of the Far East and Appenzell: traditional mud-baths, whey or Kneipp cures alongside ayurveda, tai-chi and chi-yung beauty treatments. Probably the most natural of the «natural remedies» in this area is clear fresh Appenzell air. Not surprisingly, therefore, the resorts that used to be world famous for their healthy air are still plentiful, with the «Biedermeier village» of Heiden well in the lead, located on a sunny terrace in the hills high above Lake Constance. Pure alpine air is also available in abundance on the Säntis, where on a clear day there is a view over six countries from the summit (2,500 m above sea level).
