Thal Nature Park
⮱The route to the Thal Nature Park leads through the compact township of Klus in the Balsthal. But an expansive, wondrous world of nature unfolds beyond this: the gentle rolling hills of the Jura.
⮱Its location between Zurich, Berne and Basel makes it Switzerland’s most central nature reserve, and its touristic offer is one of the most attractive: the wide valley of the river Dünnern behind the Weissenstein, the local mountain to Solothurn, awaits visitors with eager anticipation.
Fortress ruins attest to its importance as a pack route. Today, transit traffic rolls beyond the Jura mountain ranges, and not fortresses but picturesque farms occupy the best vantage points. And a dense network of cycling and hiking trails lead to and from rather than past these, since several farmsteads run inns that enjoy an outstanding reputation.
Those seeking unique culture amidst these unparalleled natural surroundings will be rewarded in the "Haar und Kamm" (hair and comb) museum, which regards itself as a total touristic concept and offers a wide variety of events.
The “Picnic Feast” is a backpack chock-full of delicacies from the Thal Nature Park. It even includes sparkling wine. The picnic is available in three varieties: salmon, meat and vegetarian. In addition, you receive special hiking tips with information on the NaturparkBus departures, hiking routes and the most pleasant picnic sites.
