SWISS PLACES - 26 CANTONS
For our first visit to Canton Appenzeller Innerrhoden, we visited their museum which celebrates their canton lifetsyle in a beautiful exhibit. We unfortunately only arrived after 4, so were unable to spend as much time as we would have liked - especially as there are many interactive exhibits that are possible earlier in the day - including making your own cheese!
Some of our highlights included...
Can you spot the giat cheese slice? It is actually a jungle gym!

How gorgeous are these cheese boxes?
A replica of an exact little Cheese Chalet that would be found in the AR mountains.
Zara eyeing out (or shoud l I say touching!) the craftmanship.
Now I had my eye on a giant cow bell. So need to get one!
Bailey loved the mini playground. Here was a cool puzzle, and there were lots of different wooden marble runs and even play-play cheese!
The gift shop has some lovely items: We had to get the cheese (of course), their traditional cookie and how stunning are the Alpfahrt paper napkins and placemats I found!
We didn't have time to go into the dairy, but will have to do it sometime soon, but the girls did have a few minutes to enjoy ice cream and the playground - cow-themed naturally!
