Solothurn

SolothurnSolothurn, Switzerland's most attractive Baroque town, marries Italian magnificence with French charm and with the down-to-earth Swiss-German mentality.

The number 11 has a special significance: in 1481 Solothurn became the eleventh canton to join the Swiss confederation, and appropriately enough there are eleven of everything in the town: eleven churches and chapels, eleven historic fountains and eleven towers. It is no wonder that the cathederal of Saint Urs has eleven altars and eleven bells, and that its imposing staircase leading down from the main door is made up of flights of eleven steps.

Don't forget to visit the museums of Solothurn, for example, the excellent Natural History Museum or the Museum "Altes Zeughaus".
