Abbey library

Delving into the secrets of century-old books

St Gallen abbey was dissolved in 1805 and has since become a Unesco world heritage site. The monastic library is one of St Gallen's biggest tourist attractions, featuring such treasures as the oldest book in German and the earliest complete musical score, as well as important holy manuscripts.
