Cable car Weissenstein


A visit to the Weissenstein offers unforgettable moments at any time of year. The cable car takes you up to Solothurn's local mountain in just 10 minutes. During the ride on the panoramic gondolas, you can enjoy the unique views of the Swiss Plateau and the Alps - an experience for the whole family from Oberdorf (SO) up to 1280 metres above sea level.

A fantastic Alpine panorama from Säntis to Mont Blanc awaits you on top of the Weissenstein. Another highlight is the Planet Trail, which gives you an idea of the universe and is very popular. The Jura garden with around 200 plant species is a jewel of its kind and the mountain Restaurants as well as the Hotel Weissenstein await you with local specialities.
