Solothurn is known as the most beautiful baroque city in Switzerland, renowned for the architecture favoured by the ambassadors of the King of France who resided here from 1530 to 1792 – hence its epithet of the “City of Ambassadors”.
Solothurn is a pleasing blend of Italian grandeur, French charm and Swiss-German tradition, and its churches, gateways and towers all speak of a rich heritage. The city is compact and easily to explore, home to internationally important sacred monuments such as the St. Ursen cathedral and the Jesuit church. The number 11 plays an important, mystical role in Solothurn, and you come across it everywhere – 11 museums, 11 churches, 11 fountains, and more.
