Family Trip: St. Gallen

The final destination on our return to Zurich was St. Gallen, one of the largest cities in eastern Switzerland.  The city is best known for its UNESCO Abbey of St. Gall, which has a beautiful rococo library housing manuscripts from the 8th century.  Our visit was limited by a late evening arrival, but we enjoyed a stroll through the town center, appropriately decorated in traditional Swiss motifs to give a quaint small-town feel to an otherwise modern city.
