Saurer Museum

Reviewed By pore - Goldau, Switzerland

Saurer was not only one of the leading companies for the construction of trucks and buses with a very high market share but also the producer of textile machines and other industrial products. All the companies which belonged to the group got moved to other groups or got in liquidation.
The museum shows an important part of the textile machines and of course of trucks and buses.
It is owned by a historic truck group. The textile machines were a gift to round the museum up.
A larger museum is planned and I hope there will be even more of these great trucks and buses in the new hotel once it is ready.
The entrance tickets are available at the nearby restaurant/hotel Wunderbar which is just a few steps from the entrance.

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.

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.

Tiefenstein UnterwasserWelten

Reviewed By Daniel S

Ich hatte mir für den 16.08.2017 eine Bekleidung zum tauchen bei Tiefenstein
UnterwasserWelten gebucht.
Netter und schneller Mail Kontakt vorab.
Sehr angenehme Atmosphäre und gutes Briefing vor Beginn des Tauchgangs.
Der Tauchgang war Bodensee typisch ab einer bestimmten Tiefe recht frisch ...
Aber toll. Danke nochmals.
Die 100 Franken sind recht happig aber das wusste ich vorher und mir war es das Wert.

Reviewed By r0landbrunner - Zurich, Switzerland

already the architecture of this building (by Gigon/Guyer) is amazing, as is the location on the lake and the sculptures around it. and inside (admission free) there are some quite remarkable Exhibitions, and more stunning views on the bulding itself. an unexpected highlight at our visit to Rorschach and highly recommended.

Das Lokal wird von einer Stiftung geführt. Alle Helfer sind freiwillig dort. sind freundlich, aber nicht so geübt im Service. Eigentlich schade. Aber.... das Essen war trotzdem gut.

Walked up the narrow stairs to even get a better view over the lake. We were lucky as the weather just changed when we arrived in Heiden. We had a great view from up there.

Strandbad Arbon

Reviewed By Philip F - London, United Kingdom

We were on a cycling holiday around the lake and had been to a number of different Strandbads. We cycled past this one and I noticed a swimming pool. At first I thought it was shut as there was no one at reception. Luckily, I persisted and rang a bell at reception. What a place - Olympic size swimming pool, separate diving pool with high boards, and another huge pool with a water slide. Crystal clear water. Otherwise you can swim in the lake. Beautifully manicured lawns, cafe, changing rooms with hair dryers. I would consider going back just to visit this place again.

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 ?
