The yellow wooden house stands in the middle of the village Appenzell, opposite to the town hall. It is 450 years old (built around 1560), has an old equipment from grandmother's time and can tell stories.

The space
The rooms in the house are very old. The structure of the house is reminiscent of the Middle Ages. For people from the city and from other countries, this is a romantic experience. The comfort is simple and practical, the ceilings and doors are low, as was common in traditional houses in the Appenzell region. Some important parts of the house, which make our life more comfortable, are new, e.g. mattresses, bedding, towels, internet connection etc.

Guest access
The apartment is on the first floor.
On the ground floor is a book shop. On the second floor are three guestrooms and a kitchen. My wife an me are living in rooms of the third floor.
You may lock your apartment and enjoy your privacy.

Other things to note
Breakfast or meals are not included, but you can easily prepare them yourself. Bakeries and restaurants in the neighboring houses offer everything necessary, even on Sundays.

It's possible to book rooms in this house for up to 10 persons.

From two nights the price of the apartment will be cheaper. That helps to spend more time in the picturesque village and in the beautiful landscape.
For stays of three nights or more, you will receive the Appenzell Holiday Card for free. It provides free admission or significant discounts on trains, mountain railways, museums and tourist activities in the area. This considerably reduces the prize of your stay.

Appenzell, Appenzell Innerrhoden, Switzerland

The yellow wooden house stands in the middle of the village Appenzell, opposite to the town hall. It is 450 years old, has antique furniture from my grandmother's time and can tell stories. This gives a romantic feeling and a historical experience especially for people living in today's modern flats.

There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.
The main church of the village and a monastery are close to our house. You'll hear their bells regularly.

The official tourist office is situated opposite to our house, on the right side of the town hall. The staff there will happily give you any information about excursions, events etc. You may ask me as well, if this office is closed.

Nach mehreren berufsbedingten Aufenthalten in verschiedenen Städten der Schweiz wohne ich jetzt in Appenzell, einem Dorf am Fusse des Alpsteins. Ich bewohne dort ein im Mittelalter erbautes Holzhaus. Einige Zimmer dieses Hauses habe ich sanft restaurieren lassen und kann nun deren historischen Charme zeigen. Das betrifft primär die drei Gästezimmer im zweiten Stock, während die Ferienwohnung und das Erdgeschoss noch wie früher eingerichtet ist. Meine persönlichen Interessen sind vor allem Kulturreisen, Kunst, spirituelle Praxis, Massage, integrale Philosophie, Beziehung zwischen östlicher und westlicher Welt, die Evolution des Bewusstseins, die Entfaltung des Herzens und ein lebenslanges Lernen. In meinen bisherigen Lebensphasen war ich Lehrer, Kunsthistoriker, Sprachwissenschafter, Informatiker und Projektmanager. Heute lebe ich als Trainer, Coach, selber Übender und gebe gelegentlich Workshops in meinem Haus. Ich mag Gespräche mit Menschen, die persönlich, kreativ, heiter und tiefgründig sind. Wenn Gäste von ihrer Familie und Lebensweise in ihrem Land erzählen möchten, höre ich gerne zu. Ebenso gerne verweile ich in der Stille draussen in der Natur und daheim.

Mostly I am present in the house. If you like, we can have coffee or tea and talk with each other during a break. If you like to talk about yourself, your lifestyle and your country, I will be happy to listen.
I also like to give information about the environment and the peculiarities of the country. Otherwise I will leave you to your / your privacy and relaxation.
