World Heritage Days 2024: Abbey of St. Gall


The UNESCO World Heritage properties in Switzerland open their doors and invite you into the world of our Heritage with unique experiences! 

Would you like to learn more about UNESCO World Heritage in Switzerland? Follow in the footsteps of our Heritage on the weekend of 08th and 09th of June 2024! The World Heritage Days offer unique insights into the diverse natural and cultural treasures of Switzerland and allow views that are otherwise often denied to visitors.


The motto of this year's World Heritage Day in St. Gallen is 'From the Middle Ages to the Future: How World Heritage is Restored and Protected'.

On the occasion of World Heritage Days, restorers, monument conservators and carpenters will show visitors during exclusive guided tours how the World Heritage is preserved and protected for future generations. The event will open at 1 p.m. with the presentation of the new Swiss art guide to the cathedral and musical accompaniment by cathedral organist Christoph Schönfelder. For children there will be a puzzle course with exciting prizes. Residents of the Canton of St. Gallen will also receive a 50% discount on overnight stays at the Sorell Hotel in St. Gallen.
