Doors, portals and their stories

Guided tours


The variety of artistically designed doors and portals in Solothurn's old town is impressive. On the guided tour you will learn interesting facts about artistic handles, decorations and what is hidden behind the doors and portals. It is exciting to hear who has been rehearsing behind the small black door at the parish house since 742 or who famous entrepreneur lived behind the oak door in the Vigierhof.
