Welcome to Solothurn

The imposing, 66m-tall facade of the magnificent St Ursus Cathedral, standing majestically among fountains, piazzas, churches and city gates, gives weight to Solothurn’s claim to be Switzerland’s most beautiful baroque town.

Solothurn is often overlooked, but it's well worth spending a day or a night here, if you're looking for a beautiful, historic location that's by the water at the foot of the mountains and retains a sleepy, rural vibe, especially after dark when the few day-trippers leave.
