Laugther, hiking and unique views over Lake Constance
For over 20 years, this trail has been putting visitors in good spirits. And there’s a good reason for that. The «Witzweg» or «joke trail» starts in Heiden and passes through Wolfhalden, ending in Walzenhausen. The trail charms hikers with stunning panoramic views over Lake Constance and the Appenzeller Vorderland. «Joke stations» along the way invite them to have a break and a chuckle. So what’s Appenzell humour all about? You’ll find out on the trail. It’s a Swiss classic.
The hike on the joke trail quickly becomes a leisurely and inexpensive adventure tour: you can explore the unique Appenzellerland above Lake Constance with two mountain railways, a post bus and a boat. The round trip by boat is possible from May to mid-October.
