The Weissenstein – a classic
"We reached Rüttenen via the old town of Solothurn, the idyllic Verena gorge and the Einsiedelei health spa. From there, a steep ascent led us onto the Balmfluhchöpfli and the Röti. The magnificent panoramic views made all our sweat and effort worthwhile. We rounded the arduous day off with a well-deserved tea and snack at Restaurant Sennhaus."
