Day Trip With Chocolate, Cheese, and Mountains

Duration:   9 hours

  • Cheese tasting at a show dairy 
  • Cable car ride up the Hoher Kasten panoramic mountain

The tour starts by heading to the Lindt Chocolate Shop, where top-quality Swiss chocolate can be purchased at discount prices. The journey then continues to the hilly region of Appenzell, where a visit to a show dairy complete with cheese-tasting is on the program.

Afterwards, a ride on the aerial cableway takes you from Brüllisau up to the summit of the panoramic mountain, Hoher Kasten. From the spectacular revolving restaurant (food not included), guests can enjoy a fabulous 360° view of the surrounding region. Back in the village of Appenzell, a stroll accompanied by a tour guide leads through the picturesque pedestrian zone, where typical, beautifully adorned half-timbered houses line the famous Landsgemeindeplatz square.

Here you hear all about the unusual political traditions practiced by the people of Appenzell, and other stories and anecdotes. Afterwards, you pay a visit to a traditional bakery before returning to Zurich.
