The idyllic Verena Gorge is just a short walk from Solothurn, but transports you into a lush, verdant haven of tranquility and simpler way of life. A two kilometre hike along the misty, mystical path at the bottom of the gorge first takes you past the Magdalene and then the Mount of Olives grottos, a forest chapel built into the side of the gorge itself. Finally you’ll come across the Verena Hermitage, an atmospheric spot on the banks of a stream still maintained by a real life hermit! Hermitage is open Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm.
