Begin your tour from the train station (Bahnhof). Just opposite is the tourist office where you can gather all sorts of information about what to see and do.
Dominating the town is the cathedral, its twin towers visible from most points.
Go to Appenzell
I went to Appenzell through the Appenzeller-Land and it was a really nice trip. At the last sunday in April they make use of their democracy - they sign via hand about all the political decisions of the last year. This is called "Landsgemeinde" and tere are a lot of nice sweets which belong to this.
The villages in Appenzeller-Land are build of small, nice to view colorful houses. Enjoy the beautiful viewings :-)
The monastery was founded in 613 and dedicated to Saint Gallus. During the Middle Ages was founded the famous schools of St. Gall, where arts, letters and sciences flourished.
The nowday cathedral was built among 1756 and1760 on project of the Italian architect G.G.Bagnato and J.J. Beer. In the following year Peter Thumb created the anterior part of the cathedral. The presbytery with a beautiful convex prospectus among two tall towers, was made on a project of J.M.Beer.
Joachim Vadian (1484-1551) was a Swiss humanist reformer, city physician, and mayor of St Gall. He was the brother-in-law of Conrad Grebel but rejected Anabaptism and suppressed the movement in St Gall. Under his leadership, the city also removed images and abolished the Mass.
On this picture, you can see on the front the Vadian Monument and in the back the St.Mangen-Kirche.
