Guided museum tour


There are various museums in Solothurn and the surrounding area that our guides will be happy to introduce you to.

The Blumenstein Museum gives you a multifaceted insight into the domestic culture of the Ancien Régime.

Thanks to generous donations, the art museum has one of the most beautiful and valuable art collections in Switzerland, specialising in 19th and 20th century Swiss art.

Waldegg Castle, with its richly decorated rooms, paintings and furniture from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, illustrates the upper middle-class life in the French style that was cultivated in Solothurn.

The Old Armoury was built between 1609 and 1614 and served as a weapons and armoury for the burghers and the mercenary trade until 1798. A large part of today's collection dates from this period, including the internationally renowned armour collection with around 400 suits of armour.

The Solothurn Nature Museum is known as an attractive museum for its accessible exhibitions on animals, plants, fossils and minerals from the region.
