Hauptgasse (main street)

The main street, or Hauptgasse, with its quaint, colourful houses is a unique sight. It's worth taking the time to walk through the street between Landsgemeindeplatz, the historic town square, and Adlerplatz – to shop, enjoy a coffee in one of the cosy cafés or simply take in the lovely images.

Tucked behind the beautifully painted façades, speciality shops of all kinds will entice you to take a leisurely shopping spree. Here you will find handcrafted and culinary Appenzell products. Sleepy corners, historic buildings, beautiful paintings, quaint restaurants and gardens invite you to enjoy an adventure full of surprises.
