Hint

Intro

Approximately 40 markers tell jokes and invite you to smile and tarry awhile.

Description

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. In the middle of the path on the Chistenpass is the "Witzchistä" during the summer season. Anyone entering this quaint wooden box is told jokes by born-and-bred Appenzell residents in a video message.

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.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
