If there is one thing I like more than travelling it’s food so the gourmet guided tour I had in Appenzeller was a real treat!Adventures in Switzerland- Appenzeller and Gasthaus Aescher
We started with a cheese tasting around the town, then a quick stop at the bakery for some traditional swiss baked treats, feasted on a real cheesecake with some regional wine and we had a beer tasting at 11 in the morning and then hiked up a mountain (I know, I know I live life dangerously ha!). It’s safe to say my day began very well!
The village of Appenzell is the tourist centre of Appenzellerland. There are
lots of colourfully painted houses in the car-free main street, an array of specialist
shops and traditional craft workshops and cute little
Appenzeller cafes with local specialties (meats,beer, cheese, wine etc) .
We then headed to Berggasthaus Aescher-Wildkirchli : at Wasserauen-Ebenalp we got a cable car up , then hiked, walked through a few caves and then we emerged through a mountain top clearing. There was a 400 year old chapel tucked into a cave and views or days! The words picturesque or scenic don’t seem to be enough to describe the view but I’m sure the photos do the area some justice. After all tat we arrived at Berggasthaus Aescher-Wildkirchli and had traditional Swiss Rosti’s for lunch I had mine with salad while the other tried some traditional Swiss sausage and more beer because we’d earned them and the ones from the morning had worn off ha!
