Swiss Alpine Museum

Experience the ambience of the Swiss mountains at Switzerland's sole Alpine museum. Learn more about their diversity, their historical and current backgrounds and their prospects for the future. It is only a stone's throw from the Matterhorn to the Bernina (the largest collection of mountain reliefs).

In Bern, the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are near enough to be grasped. Only the Swiss Alpine Museum (ALPS) is closer to the mountains.

Suteria

Sample original Solothurn Torte, the city's own gateau, during a coffee break at the Suteria – or buy some to take home for dessert.

Spring mud packs

Sulphur bath and the hotel's own spring mud for fango packs - unique in Switzerland. A great way to limber up for the Alps.

Meyerstollen

For more than 200 years, an extraordinary network of tunnels, chambers and shafts has extended under the city, constructed by the industrialist Johann Rudolf Meyer to harness hydro power. You can explore them and the new railway station on a guided tour.

Aarau is home to a special place of cultural interest consisting of a unique construction from the perspective of technology and industrial history: the Meyerschen Stollen, an underground water collecting system dating from the early 19th century.
