Alpine Route Tour Day 9: Weesen -> Appenzell

Get up early to watch the sun burn the fog of the lake. We'll then cycle north on a long flat stretch before reaching the climbs that bring us to the Appenzell region.

This is perhaps how you’ve imagined Switzerland: neat little houses perched on manicured alps, men cutting grass with scythes, blooming flowers decorating tidy villages. Ask about how the fields and farmhouses are kept so immaculate and even the Swiss will conceed that the Appenzellers are a tad obsessive. Nevermind: it’s a cyclists paradise and so we’ve decided to take some extra time to explore.

We’ll make our way through Appenzell’s most beautiful valleys with the Santis mountain always in the foreground. It’s an Appenzell icon and we’ll skirt the base of before heading off to the pasture lands

Our overnight is in the center of the small city of Appenzell itself. This is a very popular destination for tour groups, but we'll be pulling in late afternoon after the buses have left and have the streets, shops and beer gardens to ourselves.
