Switzerland | Appenzell, Saint Gallen & Zurich

Switzerland | Appenzell, Saint Gallen & Zurich

In this video, I am covering the Appenzell district, Zurich and general things worth knowing about Switzerland. This trip was extra special because I was visiting my best friend who lives there and this was my first proper trip after the Covid pandemic travel break. We really got the best of both. On day 1, we visited the Appenzell area which is part of the Swiss Alps and offered us incredible views of the Swiss mountain. Then on the way back, we stopped at Saint Gallen, which is a beautiful student city. The rest of the time of the trip we spent in Zurich exploring the city. We also visited the highest point in Zurich - Uetliberg lookout tower. The views from up there were incredible. 0:00 Intro: Switzerland 0:37 Hike in Appenzell 2:20 Berggasthaus Aescher 2:54 Saint Gallen 4:30 Zurich 7:05 How expensive is Switzerland? 7:29 Best food and cocktail places in Zurich 9:34 Switzerland Chocolate 10:07 Uetliberg Viewpoint 11:43 Behind the scenes If you enjoyed this video, please give it a like and if you would like to see more travel videos, please subscribe to my channel.
