Appenzell (or ''Appenzellerland'') is a region and historical canton in the northeast of Switzerland, entirely surrounded by the Canton of St. Gallen.
Appenzell became independent of the Abbey of St. Gallen in 1403 and entered a league with the Old Swiss Confederacy in 1411, becoming a full member in 1513. It has been divided since into Appenzell Innerrhoden and Appenzell Ausserrhoden since 1597 as a result of the Swiss Reformation.
The territory of Appenzell as a geographical entity is known as ''Appenzellerland'' or (erroneously) as ''das Appenzell''.
In political contexts, the two cantons are referred to as ''beide Appenzell'' ("both Appenzells").
