HI Lucas, Nitin, 1960man, and anybody else following this thread
I was interested to read about the Appenzeller card Lucas mentioned. I assume that it is similar to the Neuchâtel Tourist Card, which is really nice for travelers. Here's a copy/paste of part of what they say on the Neuchâtel Tourism site:
The Neuchâtel Tourist Card is a pass which enables each visitor staying for a minimum of one night in a hotel, bed&breakfast or holiday apartment in the canton of Neuchâtel to benefit for free from:
the public transport system of Neuchâtel (train, funicular and bus)
an entry to 25 museums in the canton
a cruise on lakes Neuchâtel and des Brenets
a 1 day bicycle rental in Neuchâtel, La Chaux-de-Fonds or Le Locle
a trip on the chairlift in Buttes-La Robella
A complete description of this card is at: www.neuchateltourisme. ch/en/transport/public -transport.10009/neucha tel-tourist-card.12058.html
I just checked and I am afraid our friend Nitin will not be able to benefit from the Appenzeller Card since it requires a traveler to spend three nights at the same place. He's only going to be in Switzerland for one night. Readers should note that the Neuchâtel Tourist Card is given for a minimum of a one night stay.
However, on the Appenzeller Card page, there is a downloadable map in PDF that other potential visitors to the Appenzell area might find interesting. They describe the card as "The Best Visitor's Pass in Switzerland" ! Unfortunately, it appears that the cable car that goes up to the top of the Säntis is not included in the benefits, but maybe they will add that in the future. Who knows ?
