To get a bird's eye perspective on the Appenzell region there is really no need to get airborne – just follow the Alpine Trail.
The imposing Iffigfall (Iffig Falls), the magnificent Simmenfälle (Simmen Falls) and the Quellen der Simme (Springs of Simme). Add to that the superb view from the Langermatte. From highlight to highlight, this hike to the origin of the River Simme is really a thrilling experience. From Langermatte, where the legendary Battle of Wyber took place, the 30 minute ascent to Oberlaubhorn is really worth the effort.
This 2.5-hour tour is like a walk through an open-air museum.
