Themed tour: Heady stories with absinthe and fairy snack

How has Solothurn's drug policy developed? Did wine actually once flow from Solothurn's fountains? And what did Casanova get drunk on in Solothurn back then?

You can hear stories and rituals about the myth of absinthe at the "Grüne Fee", Switzerland's first legal absinthe bar. Be inspired by the culture of this herbal elixir and enjoy an absinthe with a fairy snack.
