Maestrani's Chocolarium

Chocolate makes you happy. But how does happiness get into chocolate? Come on the sweetest journey of your life and discover the secret. Maestrani’s Chocolarium – the chocolate factory of happiness – awaits you.

Reviewed By Michael M

This is a really neat way to tour a factory. You get a really good idea of how much care and effort goes into making a good quality chocolate. There are plenty of samples throughout the tour and as an added bonus you have the opportunity to make your own chocolate (for a separate fee). Highly recommend this for the young at heart.

Water Trick Fountain

Reviewed By Urs S

We were really impressed by this postmodern piece of art. The creator of the Fountain excels in depicting the moods of destiny. By a fusion of pure, harsh metal with fragile jets of fresh spring water this Fountain develops its robust yet filigree diversity.
Visitors, amazed by the beauty of this masterpiece, are taught in a playful, unexpected, but slightly tender manner not to be blinded by a façade but to strive for deeper thruths.

Wil's Tower (Wiler Turm)

Reviewed By CAAbcfc - Zurich, Switzerland

An attraction not just for the locals but a must visit for residents in the nearby region or holidaymakers exploring the Ostschweiz for a few days including the attractive Altstadt of Wil. The wooden structure has a wide spiral staircase with about 180 steps (a great idea is the one way up and one way down system which avoids complicated passing movements) and despite having to work and breathe hard to reach the viewing platform, the end result is amazing and quite a few photographs and a Panorama video afterwards, you'll be glad you gave it a go! No cars are allowed along the tracks to the attraction so easiest is to take the bus (from Wil station use the Hofberg or Oelberg 702 or 703 lines) and then it's a fairly minor hike of 10 minutes.

Reviewed By DatWiesel - Hamburg

Super Führung. Die Erklärung war sehr verständlich und alle meine Fragen - und das waren ganz schön viele - wurden ruhig und ausführlich beantwortet. Vor allem für mich als Leseratte war es äußerst interessant. Der Preis für die Führung ist mit 10 CHF sehr günstig.
Zu sehen sind übrigens diverse Setz- und Druckmaschinen. In einer kleinen Papeterie-Ecke können Bücher, Karten etc. günstig erworben werden.

Santispark

Reviewed By Henrique d - Porto, Portugal

I spent 2 hours in the swimming pool complex, it was great.
The installations are quite good, and offers a lot of fun for a wide range of ages.
There's a swimming pool for kids and a couple slide as well. Then there's a big wave pool and several more slides for grown ups. The best in my opinion was the outside swimming pool, it was snowing outside, but the warm water did the job. Great experience.
Also available a cafeteria inside.

Abbey Library

The Abbey Library St. Gallen, famous for its beautiful baroque hall, is one of the oldest Libraries in the world. And it holds one of the most important manuscript collections in Europe, especially for the Carolingian and Ottonian period from the 8th to the 11th century. The collection is presented to the visitors in changing and thematised expositions. The library forms the central part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Convent of St. Gallen.

Reviewed By DougieQT - Queenstown, New Zealand

Beautiful, we came to St Gallen specifically for the Library and Cathedral and they exceeded expectations. The Audio Guide is a must as you learn so much about EVERYTHING around St Gallen... not just the Library. Guide was easy to use with a great wee map. I loved visiting.

Convent of St. Gall

The Cathedral represents one of the last monumental Baroque monastic constructions in Europe. It was built from 1755 to 1767 under the direction of Vorarlberg native and master builder Johann Michael Beer. The choir stalls with 84 lovely carved seats and the historic organ are works of art in and of themselves. Every Tuesday, there is a Evening Prayer (Domvesper)at 5.30 P.M. The inside of the church is painted in vibrant colours and adorned with stucco, and the interior is decorated with numerous carvings. A serene atmosphere prevails in the church thanks to the soft lighting and malachite green stucco. After the secularisation of the Convent in 1805, the church became a parish church and 1847 at the same time Cathedral of the new founded diocese. In 2013, the altar area was renewed. Especially impressive is the baptism Fountain with the respecting of the frescos of the cupola. Beside the different liturgy Services and Concerts there are also guided tours, for example from may to September every Saturday at 10.30 A.M. (Free admission, collect).

Reviewed By Stefan G - Lucerne, Switzerland

... late baroque with rich yet tasteful decoration. Surprising low ceiling. Few visitors on a sunday winter morning. A bit of a shame that larger parts are locked and not available for visti. Maybe for guided tours but not to the public ?
