Monastery Library in St. Gallen

The library at the monastery in St. Gallen is Switzerland's oldest library and one of the largest and oldest monastery libraries in the world. It contains 2100 manuscripts, 1650 incunabula (prints before 1500) and early prints (printed between 1501 and 1520) as well as about 160.000 books. In 1983 the library together with the monastery district was listed as UNESCO world heritage. The collection is open to the public.

Stiftsbibliothek St.Gallen

An item deserving special mention is the St. Gallen Globe from the 16th century. The representation of the world painted on its surface is based on a world map published by the famous cartographer Gerhard Mercator in 1569.

Stilt houses at Lake Constance

The Lake Dwelling Museum Unteruhldingen is an open air museum on the shores of Lake Constance which was opened in 1922. It displays archaeological finds and replicas of stilt house villages from the stone and bronze ages. It is one of Europe's biggest open air museums. In June 2011 the remains of many historic stilt house dwellings in the alpine region - among others the dwellings Unteruhldingen-Stollenwiesen, situated about 500m south of the museum - were listed as UNESCO world heritage sites.
