St Gallen

Hi

I have to visit St. Gallen for a meeting, and since we have never been to that part of the country, we were thinking of making the trip into a longer family trip. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what to see in the city (the library is on our list) and in the general area?
If we could also fit in some skiing also that would be great - so was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the Toggenburg/Chaeserugg region?

Re: St Gallen

The cathedral area and library are definitely a must. The medieval town adjoining it is famous for its oriel windows. There are well over 100 different ones.
