What Is The Weissenstein?
The Weissenstein is a mountain in the Jura mountain range, situated to the north of Solothurn, and it is in the Solothurn canton. One chain point is signified with the name Roti. It is the summit at the easternmost point in the mountains.
Up until recently, a chairlift went up from Oberdorf to a spa hotel at the summit. It went up over 2300 meters. The Solothurn-Moutier railway line tunnel from Oberdorf to Gansbrunnen on the other end was officially opened in more than a hundred years ago. The chairlift actually crossed over the railway right over the portal of the tunnel at Oberdorf.
The pass road that leads up from the town of Oberdorf over the Weissenstein Pass to Gansbrunnen is an extremely steep ascent.
