NOTE: depending on your plans you may want to look into travel cards options, sometimes worth it even for a few days


Also, the SBB train site offers Supersaver tickets on some routes. Currently the supersavers are open for train rides on Monday, 20 August. However, if you buy one of these tickets, then you must take that train and no other or you will have to buy an additional ticket for the new train ride. If you see a percent sign in the corner of the connection (figure below) then a supersaver is available. However, you must also choose Supersaver Ticket in the ‘Options for outward journey’ (figure below) once you choose which connection you would like to take. The default is for the normal ticket price.


Once you are in Solothurn, everything is pretty much walking distance.
