Where culture makes history.
History meets vibrant culture at the Old Hospital. The stage in the historic vaulted cellar regularly hosts singer-songwriters from Switzerland and around the world (Acoustic Nights), contemporary Swiss jazz musicians (Tuesday Jazz), improv performers (ImproVISION) and inspiring spoken word and sound artists (ZmorgeGschichte). During the month of August, the open-air cinema at the Krummturm Redoubt shows the latest films on the big screen, conjuring laughter, suspense and moving moments under the night’s sky (Solothurn Summer Films).
