I was born in Solothurn and I visited the church when I was young. I think it is just a fantastic place. Recently renovated. A church with a very old history. A must when you visit this town.

As there was a Mass on in the St. Ursen Cathedral we visited the Church of the Jesuits instead. It's a wonderful building and we enjoyed just soaking up the beauty and peace of the place.

Tried to visit this church yesterday but it is closed to the public for renovations. Check at the tourist office across the street to see if it has re-opened.

Town is very small and you can do everything in one day. very easy access to the train station. Only 10 minutes walk from there to the Hauptgasse. Kaffehalle if you want to stop for a light lunch.
