From tradition to rock.
In the Rhine Valley, people are both conscious of tradition and modern at the same time: Traditional music and farce have their place here just as much as pop and rock concerts, classical song recitals or cabaret. But there is also a lively theatre scene. On small local stages or in the prestigious St.Gallen Theater, which is just a stone’s throw away or just over the border at the famous Bregenz Festival. And close by there are museums of the highest quality.
