Between the Basel area and Solothurn’s Thal nature park lies the scenic Passwang range of hills. From Liestal you reach the Jura heights in solely 45 minutes by bus and gondola rail to Wasserfallen.
The mountains of the Jura chain are particularly pronounced here – and the Wasserfallen area is an ideal starting point for highland hikes or visits to the Chellenchöpfli viewpoint. And equally as tasteful are the diverse culinary offers in the numerous Jura mountain guesthouses.
The valley station of the gondola railway lies a short way behind Reigoldswil. Trips down the valley are fastest with the aid of a scooter – and courage and skills are also put to the test at the Wald high ropes park if your’e out for adventure. And summer sees a few evening descents down the valley as well!
