Driving in Appenzell

Driving Rules

Driving in Appenzell adheres to the right-hand drive, contrasting the UK's left-hand drive. And remember, seat belts are compulsory for all passengers. Also, don't forget to pack your driving license and vehicle's documents as they are essential during any random checks.

Speed Limits

Speed limits in Switzerland might differ slightly from the UK. An over-speeding fine can be heavy on your pockets, so ensure to stick to the limits:

  • Urban areas: 50 km/h
  • Country roads: 80 km/h
  • Highways: 120 km/h

Parking

In Appenzell, blue zone parking requires a parking disc. It is available at local police stations, tourist offices, or garages. Free parking spaces are rare, so keep some change handy for parking meters.

Car Class Recommendations

While any car type will get you around Appenzell, compact cars are recommended for their ease of maneuvering narrow and winding streets. 4x4s are also a great option during winter months.

Exploring Appenzell

Attractions

Appenzell is known for its Museum Appenzell, showcasing local art, history, and traditions. Never miss the chance to witness cheese manufacturing at the Schaukäserei Appenzell, and save time for a blissful stroll through the historic town centre.

Neighbourhoods

The Hauptgasse in Appenzell leads through the picturesque old town with its candy-coloured buildings. A short drive to the nearby scenic village of Stein provides striking views of the Alpine landscape.

Tips

Just like in the UK, drink-driving laws are strict in Switzerland. The legal limit is 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood. Also, note that winter tyres are not legally required but are strongly recommended during snowfall.

Climate & Seasonal Events

Swiss climate varies with altitude, and Appenzell has a mountain climate. Summers are typically mild with average temperatures around 18°C, and winters can get quite chilly. If visiting in December, don't miss the traditional Saint Sylvester Mummers Processions.

Further Afield

A short drive from Appenzell, you will find the cities of St. Gallen and Bregenz waiting to be explored, showcasing a delightful blend of urban culture and architecture. Moreover, you could reach the stunning Lake Constance in under an hour from Appenzell!

Currency

The official currency in Switzerland is the Swiss Franc (CHF), not the Euro. Credit or debit cards are accepted widely, but having some francs for smaller purchases is advisable.

Well, you're all set to unveil the charm of Appenzell using your rented vehicle. Safe travels!
