The highlight of tourism in Appenzell. The Wildkirchli area has always had a unique charm and is still one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Appenzellerland. This part of Switzerland has been on our bucket list for a long time. Äscher – the most famous mountain restaurant of the Alpstein. It is a four and a half hour train ride from where we live. And a two hour hike either up or down. Unfortunately it was a dull and overcast day – not much of a blue sky.
