Abbey of St. Gall

What is important to you? Values - once and today

This offer is available in German only

How did a child grow up in a monastery? What did a monk own? An animated film, documents and writing materials give an insight into life in the early Middle Ages and show what once was important. We will then design a document ourselves for something that is important to us. We fold this document professionally and put it in a small box, which we decorate beautifully. In this way we give value to what is important to us.

Recommended age: 1st to 3rd class
Duration: 1.5 hours
Total costs: CHF 190.- plus entrance fee (from 10 persons CHF 7.- per student, under 10 persons CHF 9.-)
Times of realisation: all year round during the opening hours of the Abbey District
