Went there not long ago. I have been to many mountains in Switzerland but this one is not a part of the alps. The WEISSENSTEIN is more central located. If you're interested to go and be prepared for one of the most amazing sights ever....More

No better thing to do around Solothurn in Autumn, then take a picnic, your hiking shoes and get above the clouds. Glorious sunshine, warmth and plenty of existing bbq fires around the hills to have your own hillside picnic and roasted wursts. The views are...More

The Seilbahn is worth a trip however it is very expensive for the length of time it takes to get to the top. The view is spectacular, especially on a clear day. Don't eat at the Kurhaus Restaurant Weissenstein.

Waiting a couple of days for the cloud to lift before taking this ride up was worth it! The views up were spectacular as each distance unfolded towards the various Swiss ranges. Once up there, a whole new world opened up with a working farm/restaurant...More

A characterless, bland run-of-the-mill cablecar that replaced the unique (last of its kind) open-seat cableway from the 1950s, in spite of a grassroots campaign to save it. Another monument of Swiss engineering gone forever.

Bit late, but if you are fit and the weather is nice, then it's your choice. We were not fit, storms threatened, so we took the cable car and walked down - it was steep and took a couple of hours for photo stops etc. Hope... More
