Weissenstein winter paradise

Solothurn’s ‘local mountain’ is a winter paradise with impressive far-reaching views at 1,280 metres above sea level.

As soon as winter brings the first snow to the region, new life comes to the Weissenstein. After a ride in the gondola lift from Oberdorf, a fantastic Alpine panorama with views of Mont Blanc reveals itself. The Weissenstein promises culinary delights, tobogganing, snowshoe walking, cross-country skiing and an exciting treasure hunt for the whole family.
