“Gorgeous scenery!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

I did not use a car when in Switzerland recently. No problem! This railway is not only punctual but has some scenic stretches that are just breath taking! There are also little maps on these trays near your seats so you can consult the map if you think you are lost, not sure where you are or on the wrong train.

“On time service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Very reliable timetable. Middle coaches are best for comfort. Good views of the canton are worth a ride even if you normally use a car.

“Great way to get around the area”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

The train service is a great way to get around the Appenzell area particularly if you don't have a car. Easy to use and goes through great scenery. Limited if you want to travel in the evening, though there is a bus, but the timetable suggested you had to call to book on it.

“Great trip - wonderful, wonderful Appenzell”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

I love Appenzell! Everything about it is so typical of rural Switzerland. It is a perfect gem and once we had found the smashing Hotel Lehman, apart from the weather which was, sadly, grim, we had a fantastic holiday.

“Lovely landscape, reliable trains”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

The Appenzell is a very nice region and with this train it's a peaceful opportunity to discover it. At any station, you may stop and have a walk or hiking tour. The trains are reliable and punctual, the staff is very attentive and helpful.
