St. Gallen's history as a textiles centre has left its mark on the hotel's own architectural heritage.
The Einstein St.Gallen Hotel Congress Spa has long had close ties with the textile industry.
The Neoclassical building dates from 1830 and was only converted into a four-star hotel in 1978.
The location is unique, for the hotel is situated in the heart of St. Gallen, near to the famous Abbey, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Lake Constance and the Appenzellerland are just a 20-minute drive away.
