Dive into the world of the Green Fairy.
"Die Grüne Fee" (The Green Fairy) is Switzerland's first legal absinthe bar, and it is located here in Solothurn. Absinthe was discovered in the Val-de-Travers in the mid-18th century, and it soon became the "in" drink of the Paris bohemians. The green fairy was banned in most European countries at the start of the 20th century but it survived underground for nearly 100 years. You will be spellbound by this guided tour that introduces you to the culture of absinthe as you learn more about this mystical beverage and its history.
