The canton Appenzell Innerrhoden

by Jorge Sanchez - 3 years, 7 months ago

I took the train in Herissau and soon I reached Appenzell, the capital of Appenzell Innerrhoden, the smallest canton in Switzerland by population. As soon as I left the station I was greatly surprised to note that practically every house showed fantastic murals in their façades, even the belfry of the Catholic Church. With great enthusiasm I started to walk around the town admiring the painting. Appenzell seemed a fairy tale village. Several of its houses are considered national heritage sites by the Government of Switzerland. Some of the houses that I loved more were the Gasthaus, the bakery with the paintings of the three Kings (Biblical Magi) Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar, the church and a restaurant with an igloo. After my visit to Appenzell I headed by train to Frauenfeld, in the canton of Thurgau.
