Solothurn's "local" mountain

"The Weissenstein peak – a real hikers' paradise high above Solothurn. To escape the fog, we visited Solothurn's local mountain. A cable car runs from Oberdorf up to the Weissenstein. Once you arrive at the top, the panorama takes your breath away. If you're lucky, you will have a view from Säntis as far as Mont Blanc! After a stroll along some of the many hiking paths, we enjoyed the sunshine in one of the restaurants. A perfect Sunday!"
