6. Woodland walks in Solothurn

“Wasseramt – the name is amazing. The hilly countryside region is shaped neither by a grand lake district nor by mighty rivers. The ice-age Rhône glacier left just two small lakes, Burgäschi and Inkwiler, in an idyllic location in what are known as dead ice holes. The uniquely abundant and sizeable boulders also bear witness to the glacier in the Wasseramt.”

Elias Kurt
