The heart of eastern Switzerland, St. Gallen strikes a balance between metropolitan hub and charming historical center. A trip to St. Gallen--home to a UNESCO-protected cathedral and a pedestrian-only historical center--offers a chance to admire impressive architecture and explore one of the world's great libraries. The Rococo-style library has gained worldwide fame for housing over 170,000 historical documents, some more than a thousand years old. No St. Gallen holiday is complete without a tour of the nearby nature, which includes Appenzell Alps and Lake Constance. Use our Switzerland online visit planner to plan your trip to St. Gallen and other destinations in Switzerland.
