Appenzell Local Customs: 8 reviews and 24 photos

Watch out for the great guildsigns that you will find all over the centre of the town of Appenzell. They mostly date back to a time, when most people were not able to read an inscription at a shop, so you will find the profession explaned there by symbols and pictures.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
