Tour description

We reached Rüttenen via the old town of Solothurn, the idyllic Verena gorge and the Einsiedelei health spa. From there, a steep ascent led us onto the Balmfluhchöpfli and the Röti. The magnificent panoramic views made all our sweat and effort worthwhile. Inside the Weissenstein museum of the time-honoured Kurhaus, we felt transported back into the Belle Epoque. We rounded the arduous day off with a well-deserved tea and snack at Restaurant Sennhaus.
