*Great, isn’t it? Free and eco-friendly travel to Appenzell.

Free arrival and departure – how it works

Book a hotel of your choice in Appenzell and the surrounding area and, with a reservation of three nights or more, receive a free public transport ticket (2nd class) from your place of residence in Switzerland to Appenzell for your arrival and return journey in all hotels in Appenzell.

Order your tickets four days before your desired journey online using the form below or by phone (up to 24 hours before your departure) at the Tourist Information (T +41 71 788 96 41). After your order, you will receive your public transport tickets from the Appenzellerland Tourismus AI and the Appenzell Card from your accommodation with more than 20 further free offers.

These documents are usually sent by email. This allows you to conveniently save the ticket on your smartphone or to print it out at home. If desired, it goes without saying that we are also happy to send you the documents by post.
