Welcome to cowbell country. In the moo-mellow and storybook-friendly Appenzell region, you'll find the warm, intimate side of the land of staggering, icy Alps. With just one percent of Switzerland's territory and one percent of its population, the little canton of Appenzell stubbornly celebrates its way of life. A gentle beauty blankets this region of green, rolling hills, watched over by the 8,200-foot peak of Mount Säntis. As you travel, you'll enjoy an ever-changing parade of finely carved chalets, colorful villages, and cows moaning, "Milk me."
