Schwellbrunn

The highest village in Appenzell. Schwellbrunn owes its tourist attraction mainly to the various excursion possibilities with attractive vantage points

The highest municipality in the canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden is located at 972 m a.s.l. and offers a fantastic view of the Alpstein as far as Lake Constance. With a village of national importance, nestled in the beautiful Appenzell countryside, with a traditional culture and lively customs, our community is a popular destination for excursions and leisure activities. With an area of 1741 hectares, a resident population of around 1560, a good infrastructure and a high quality of life, Schwellbrunn is also a recommended rural residential community - under the motto: small but pleasant! The wide range of businesses and services, gastronomy and agriculture offer jobs for around 400 people. Just a few minutes' drive from the economic zones of Herisau and St. Gallen, our community also combines the advantages of a rural region with those of an urban centre. Schwellbrunn owes its tourist attraction mainly to the various excursion possibilities with attractive vantage points. In winter there are also family-friendly ski lifts, cross-country ski runs and tobogganing possibilities. In addition, our cosy inns invite you to have fun and stay.
