Murren to Appenzell

Hello - can anyone advice the best way by train or bus from Murren to Appenzell - do we need to go back to Zurich?

For anything concerning public transportation in Switzerland check [original link]

Mürren to Appenzell is quite a long trip, about 5 hours or a little more involving several changes.
You will definitely go through Zürich, but it depends on your actual connection if you change trains in Zürich or Olten.

Thank you for that information - where we live the closest City is a 9 hr drive by car so 5 hrs in a train with scenery will be more than bearable.

LOL, yes, it's all relative :-)

Another option is to travel via Luzern on the Luzern-Interlaken Express, then the Voralpen Express between Luzern and Herisau, where there is a final change to Appenzell. It will take over an hour longer but is far more scenic and you could break your journey in Luzern.
