Get to know the sly-witted Appenzeller humor and lose yourself in the fabulous landscape of Appenzeller Land with its breathtaking view of Lake Constance, extending as far as southern Germany, the Rhine Delta and the Bay of Bregenz. On about 40 signposts you will find some of the funniest Appenzeller jokes. Söndi, the Joke Trail mascot, has packed an adventure backpack for the young guests. With this backpack the hike on the Joke Trail is even more exciting and diverse. We are not disclosing the contents of the backpack, but will say this much: besides a quiz there are also materials for crafts and a sweet treat. The activities included in the backpack are carried out directly on the trail. The combination of hiking tour and adventure ride is considered a secret tip. With the fantastic round-trip ticket, you can explore Appenzeller Land above Lake Constance in an ingenious and comfortable way aboard two mountain trains and a cruise ship.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
