Appenzell, Switzerland

Appenzell



Appenzell is an alpine region, particularly in the south, where the Alpstein limestone range (culminating in the Säntis which is 8,216 feet (2,504 m)) is found, though towards the north the surface is composed rather of green hills, separating green hollows in which nestle neat villages and small towns. It is mainly watered by two streams that descend from the Säntis, the Urnasch joining the Sitter (on which is the capital, Appenzell), which later flows into the Thur.
