Appenzell is a town in northeastern Switzerland, at the foot of the Alpstein mountains. Trails and cableways connect various summits, including towering Santis peak. On the steep cliffs of the Ebenalp, the Wildkirchli cave complex houses a 17th-century chapel and hermitage. Nearby is the old Aescher inn, tucked into the side of a sheer cliff. Appenzell’s car-free center features wooden houses with colorful facades.
