The vibrant city of St.Gallen
St. Gallen’s high quality of life vastly differs from other cities. It is also unique when it comes to its picturesque old town, its vibrant cultural scene and its historical heritage, thanks to its world-renowned Abbey Library. The pedestrian area of the city centre entices you to explore its beautiful alleys, bustling squares and wide array of culinary offerings. The popular Olma trade fair, or the “OpenAir St.Gallen”, the cult music festival, are just some highlights of the city’s busy social calendar.
High quality of life between the Säntis and Lake Constance
The rural surroundings with the Alpstein and Lake Constance offer a unique recreation area everyone enjoys, including hikers and those seeking mere relaxation. Shaped by its urban character and natural surroundings, St.Gallen combines the conveniences of a large city with a rural environment, and thus enjoys a unique quality of life: short walking distances between destinations, a compact centre, and a stunning natural environment in its vicinity, from the Säntis to Lake Constance.
A long tradition in education and a robust job market
Education is in St.Gallen’s DNA. It comes as no surprise it houses the University of St.Gallen, as well as other practically oriented universities, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) and the St.Gallen cantonal hospital.
