While Zurich was pulsating to techno beats, we decided to escape to the cutesy Swiss town of Appenzell this past weekend. This place was pulsating alright, but to the traditional sounds of yodel and "Ländler" (folk music). The 14. Appenzeller Ländlerfest was lots of fun, as you will see from the pictures and the exclusive video below!
