The Abbey Library audioguides have proved very popular. They provide visitors with detailed information on the Baroque hall and exhibition as well as the Cathedral and the entire Abbey district. Apart from the Abbey Library and the Cathedral, the audio-guided tour includes the Gallusplatz, the Mülenen Gorge waterfall, the Karlstor, the Abbey courtyard and the Guardian Angel Chapel.

The scripts for the audio guides have been carefully prepared by a team of specialists. The explanatory texts in German, English, French and Italian are narrated by professional voice actors, with an alternation between male and female voices to hold the listener’s interest. The audio guides are lightweight and user-friendly. They are available at the cash desk for CHF 5.00 and against deposit of an identity paper.

Audio guides must be returned to the cash desk by 17:00.
