Activities on the Weissenstein

Here you will find exciting packages and activities tailored to your needs in the hotel and the untouched nature of the Weissenstein. Either put your feet up and enjoy the peace and quiet on Solothurn's local mountain or inquire about it on foot - we will do the rest for you.


The surroundings on the Weissenstein are the starting point of many beautiful hiking trails for hikers and walkers. Whether comfortable or fast - you can find the right route for every mood. With fantastic views over the Swiss Plateau and the Alps, you can enjoy walks lasting one or several hours. But even great hikers won't miss out in the Jura. Hiking tours lasting several days allow you to explore the beauty of the Jurassic nature. Some special features are the cave system "Nidlenloch", the planet path from Weissenstein via Hasenmatt to Grenchenberg or the climbing gardens "Oberdörer Klus" and "Balmfluhchöpfli", where climbing enthusiasts will also get their money's worth.


Even experienced bikers will get their money's worth on the Weissenstein. A downhill trail leads over the Nesselboden to the valley station in Oberdorf. Take a break for refreshment on our sun terrace before the fast ride continues. We look forward to your visit!


During the winter months and when snow conditions are good, you can toboggan from Weissenstein along two paths into the valley. If you prefer to take it easy, glide down the 4.6 km long stretch to Gänsbrunnen and take the train back to Oberdorf. For the adventurous, the 4.5 km toboggan run down the pass road to Oberdorf offers a fast ride.

The opening hours, the condition of the pistes and sledge rental conditions can be found on the Weissenstein cable car website.

Jurassic Garden

On the south side of the Kurhaus, below the sun terrace, there has been a botanical garden since 1957. Marvel at the great variety of plants native to the Jura region. Further information and guided tours can be found on the Pro Weissenstein website.
