The Bern Bear Pit is an attraction that is known far beyond the borders of Switzerland. Since 2009 the bears of Bern also have a modern 6,000 square meters park at their disposal that they can reach via a tunnel.
Solothurn is said to be the most beautiful baroque city in Switzerland. The imposing buildings were constructed in various epochs: ranging from the first half of the 12th century, when the clock tower was built, to 1773, when St. Ursus Cathedral was constructed in baroque and neo-classical style.
In 1997, with the construction of the museum designed by Renzo Piano, the Fondation Beyeler now had a publicly accessible venue.
