One of the most scenic regions in Switzerland

The families of entrepreneurs and their employees find ideal conditions in the Canton of Solothurn. There are good schools available for the children. Spouses from the EU are generally granted a work permit. And there are 1001 ideas for recreation and leisure time experience.

The Canton of Solothurn is one of the most scenic regions in Switzerland. The Jura, a forested central mountain massif, runs through the canton in a curve from west to east. In fine weather, the mountains provide a unique, outstanding view as far as the Säntis and Mont Blanc in the Alps. On the central plain with the River Aare running through it, families enjoy bicycle tours, and the more ambitious bikers know of routes with steep uphill slopes and breathtaking downhill rides.

The people of Solothurn get together in many other ways too – on the golf course, while horse riding, or in winter at a game of curling or ice hockey. Yachting is popular at the harbours of Solothurn and Grenchen because the lakes of Biel and Neuenburg are within easy reach.
