Exploring “Solothurn and the Bucheggberg region”

"Book a unique tour with Switzerland’s first Mercedes Sprinter convertible panorama bus. The vehicle is equipped for all four seasons and offers ideal travel comfort, no matter the weather. Enjoy a tour with an all-encompassing 360-degree view, whether the panorama roof is open or closed. You will become acquainted with the Bucheggberg region along the way as you embrace the motto: The journey is the destination!

The route takes you around the city walls of Solothurn and through Nennigkofen, Tscheppach, Aetingen, Büren an der Aare, Arch and Grenchen to Altreu, where a stopover is planned. The Bucheggberg tour heads back to Solothurn via Lommiswil and Oberdorf.

Watch the farming villages and gentle hills covered with forests and meadows roll past as you travel around the Bucheggberg region. The view of the long Jura mountain chain and the Bernese Alps is sure to amaze you."
