Discover the Road Less Travelled in St Gallen


 
Travel & Tourism
St Gallen is an undervalued historical and cultural Swiss city. With an array of museums, historical artefacts and stunning architecture, this is the perfect destination for your Swiss city break if you’re interested in exploring the local traditions. The city also provides easy access to Lake Constance by rail, car, bike or foot.

The Abbey Precinct

The Abbey precinct’s best known landmarks are the Cathedral and library. As such, it was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1993. The first destinations of your Swiss city break to St Gallen should be these two beautiful buildings.

The Baroque Cathedral

The Baroque Cathedral is St Gallen’s most famous landmark. As one of the last monumental Baroque monastic constructions in Europe, its captures the vibrancy of the 18th century. Its interior is a stunning combination of lovely carvings and choir stalls, with colourfully painted walls depicting theological images. Relax on your Swiss city break and soak in the Cathedral’s tranquil atmosphere created by the malachite green stucco decorations.

The Abbey Library

The library is the Cathedral’s most renowned feature. Make your Swiss city break an intellectual one and explore this collection of 160,000 volumes. The lbrary hosts some of the world’s oldest and most treasured books, including 400 volumes which are over 1,000 years old. Its interior is also stunning. It has Switzerland’s most elaborate and beautiful Rococo hall, and houses medieval sculptures, 10th-century artefacts as well as objects from the 15th and 17th Centuries.

Kunst Hall

This contemporary art museum hosts various exhibitions throughout the year. It was originally created as a place where artists could react to controversial circumstances relating to urban development. Its exhibitions are expressive and thought-provoking, and definitely worth a visit. Open Tuesday to Friday from noon to 6pm and 11am-6pm on weekend, entrance cost just 7 Swiss Franks.

The Oriel Windows

When on your Swiss city break to St Gallen, you’ll notice that the Oriel Windows are a typical feature of the region’s architecture. Built in the 17th and 18th centuries, there are 111 windows ornamenting the houses in the pedestrian zone. Take a stroll through the narrow streets and enjoy the stunning beauty of these ancient windows.

The Art Museum

The building itself is an impressive neoclassic construction designed in the 1870s by Johann Christoph Kunkler. It’s what’s inside that makes it famous. Home to a vast collection of paintings and sculptures from the late Middles Ages to the present day, the Art Museum of St Gallen is a real treasure trove. It also exhibits international contemporary sculpture, focusing mainly on French, German and Dutch art.
