Solothurn and its stories
2000 years of Solothurn - and yet neither signs of fatigue nor complaints of old age plague the most beautiful baroque city in Switzerland. The guided tour offers a look behind the 2000-year history of the city. The various epochs of the city's history are the subject of the tour: from the Roman settlement "Salodurum" to Solothurn as a cultural stronghold today. In between, you will dive into the Middle Ages and hear more about the French Ambassadors, industrialisation and the 68 movement.
Second oldest city in Switzerland
Did you know that a king was crowned in Solothurn in the past and that the city was at the centre of world politics for a brief moment? Or that it was a miracle that Solothurn was the only urban settlement between Lausanne, Basel and Zurich to hold its own throughout the early Middle Ages? Have you heard that Solothurn's first commercial power line was put into operation or that the city was a cultural and political melting pot during the 68s?
A journey back in time awaits you through the most exciting chapters of the second oldest city in Switzerland.
