St. Gallen is the “Star City”

St.Gallen, Switzerland

Every year, the cultural capital of St.Gallen transforms into the City of 700 Stars in the month before Christmas. For four weeks starlight illuminates the old town of St.Gallen, creating a mystical ambience. The annual Christmas market, local crafts and musical performances set the mood for a Merry Christmas.
