Naturpark Thal nature reserve
Take the NaturparkBus to visit the second chain of the Jura mountains
The Naturpark Thal nature reserve nestles amidst the mountain ranges of Solothurn Jura - between Weissenstein and waterfalls - in the catchment area of Basel, Bern and Zurich.
Experience the pristine nature of the area on a healthy hike. And discover the treasures such as striking faces of rock, deep canyons, beautiful pine forests and vast Jura pastures together with some great viewpoints. The Naturpark Thal is said to be absolute paradise for passionate game observers. Plant enthusiasts get their fair fill too, as seldom-seen flora and fauna are observed up close. Culinary enjoyment is also yours for the taking, with several attractive mountain-catering establishments underway.
Those who prefer a more leisurely pace do well to make use of the NaturparkBus transport service, which whisks you off to the sunny Jura heights on Sundays and public holidays. The NaturparkBus runs between Balsthal and the Brunnersberg or alternatively from Welschenrohr up to Obere Tannmatt. Also, the NaturparkBus takes you directly to various mountain restaurants, such as Obere Tannmatt, Hinter Brandberg, Untere Tannmatt and Güggel.
