"Welcome to Olten" Olten by yumyum

Olten Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 18 photos

We made a quick visit to Olten for lunch. I recommend that you visit when the sun is out as it then looks so much prettier :-).

This intro picture was taken out of the train window when I travelled back from Oensingen a few months previously. When we visited in March, there was no sunshine unfortunately.

    Restaurant Rathskeller sounds to be a nice place with lots of character!

    Nice tips on this new page! I've been through Olten lots of times on the train, and by bicycle at least twice, but never got off to have a look around. I think the hourly trains from Zürich to Basel go right through Olten without stopping.

    An interseting quick visit to Olten, Sonja! A very respectable Alte Bruecke dated back to 1803 and first mentioned in 1295...

    Lovely little page about this Swiss gem, which I often come across by train.
