Weissenstein Waterfalls Trail

Hike this fascinating trail from Solothurn to the Passwang mountain ridge, crossing the first and second chains of the Jura mountains. The chairlift on Weissenstein mountain provides a special historic feel.

Hikers walking the Weissenstein-Wasserfallen Trail will be rewarded with the most stunning of views. The four-day hike from the canton of Solothurn to Basel-Country passes the time-honoured health resort on the Weissenstein mountain and through the romantic Wolfsschlucht gorge. Afterwards climb the second chain of the Jura mountains and cross into the Passwang-Wasserfallen region. For the trip back down into the valley you can either take the new gondola cable car or opt for an exhilarating scooter ride. Finally, wander past ancient castles to the end of the trail in the Liestal valley.
