In the right light the staircase makes a lovely pic. Inside is also worth a peep. Very similar to other cathedrals. Clean, well kept and appropriate for saying a small prayer.

Solothurn is not that big city but the cathedral is enormous! It's definitely worth visiting and you can also climb up to its tower. Do not skip that. The views are amazing.
