Lake Constance – Appenzell

First thing you see will be the blue waters of Lake Constance and the rolling green hills of Appenzell. Far behind the massive peaks of Alpstein and Churfirsten tower up proudly. On the first legs the Alpine Panorama Trail lives up to it’s name. But not only the scenic hikes will enchant you, also the traditional, painted houses in Appenzell and the lively traditions of Appenzell and Toggenburg will quickly cast a spell on you.

Tour character: Normal physical condition is needed. The trails are well-maintained and easy to walk.
