This trail is one of 67 wheelchair accessible trails across Switzerland described on the Mobility International Switzerland website:The Appenzell region has retained it’s original charm, which makes it a particularly appealing area to visit. Time-honoured customs, flourishing agriculture and hospitality also play their part, and the region holds a magnetic attraction for tourists. This route gives you an extensive insight.The circular route starts at Appenzell railway station and passes the art museum Appenzell, which preserves the memory of the two Appenzell painters, Carl August Liner (1871-1946) and Carl Walter Liner (1914-1997). The modern building with the jagged silhouette immediately catches the eye. Shortly afterwards, you find yourself in rural surroundings on a comfortable path with magnificent views of verdant meadows, fields and forest. Here and there along the route, you’ll see farmhouses perched on hilltops. Cattle graze peacefully on lush green pastures. This route has little traffic and promises tranquility and relaxation. Colourful flowering meadows and plants line the path and the views of this rural region are enchanting. A little while later, you pass the grand Kurhaus Hof Weissbad. The path continues through a shaded woodland, where a pretty, covered wooden bridge crosses the Sitter river. The route then turns back into open country and returns to Appenzell. A trip into the village with its famous main street and the painted facades is most definitely worthwhile, displaying the original buildings and regional way of life in their most beautiful facets.
