Photographer's Note

Appenzell is one of the most traditional regions in Switzerland. Far away from any beach activities, Landsgemeindeplatz of Appenzell is not a place where one would expect to find a beach volley tournament.

More famous this square is of Landsgemeinde (general assembly) of the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden. Eligible citizens of the canton meet last Sunday in April to decide on laws and expenditures by the council. Everyone can debate a question. Voting is accomplished by raising hands. As Appenzell Innerrhoden is the smallest canton of Switzerland by population, this kind of direct democracy is still possible.
