About St. gallen

Being located between Lake Constance and Appenzellerland, St. Gallen is one of the oldest settlements of East Switzerland. Being included in UNESCO World Heritage List in 1983, St. Gallen is a must-see place for the monuments in the monastery area. The Old City has many chic restaurants, shopping streets, parks and authentic cafes and especially The Abbey of St. Gallen, which amazes everyone with its garish facade. You can discover the majority of St. Gallen by walking, yet the public transport system is also very well advanced. Besides, St. Gallen has a big facility with four cross-country ski tracks, three chairlifts, one artificial and one natural ice-skating rinks. Since this facility is 700 metres above the sea level, it serves only for a couple of weeks in a year. If you visit St. Gallen during winter, you can do cross-county skiing in the pistes of Unterer Brand, Notkersegg, Peter and Paul, and Kinderfestplatz.  Being the most touristic and active city of East Switzerland, St. Gallen has numerous theatre halls, in which you can bump into a different cabaret show almost each day. You can also take a look at the festivals held in the city from time to time. The main touristic spots in St. Gallen are: Naturmuseum (Museum of Nature), Historisches und Völkerkundemuseum (Museum of History and Ethnoghraphy), Kunst Halle (Museum of Art), Tonhalle (Concert Hall), Sittertobel, Abbey Library and Dreilinden-Weiher. Moreover, the houses with colourful bay windows in Old City have cartpostal-look. The most famous St. Gallen restaurant in which you can taste Swiss cuisine is Erststockbeizen. St. Gallen is also known as “City of Textile” in which it is possible to see the products of famous designers such as Chanel, Christian Dior, and Giorgio Armani.
