I organized our staff outing held three times during summer time and yesterday the first group went on tour. It was a hot and sticky day - but nice all the same.
Among other places, we visited Waldegg Castle in the Canton of Solothurn. The castle was built as a summer residence between 1682 and 1690 by village major Johann Viktor von Besenval. 1865 the country estate was bought by the patrician family Sury-Büssi. Due to lack of descendants it was formed into a foundation in 1963 and now belongs to the Canton of Solothurn. Today it is a museum and serves as a wonderful place where concerts, exhibitions etc. take place.
You know how chaotic I am - my memory card did not have enough space so I could not take pics of the orangerie and the garden... I am sorry. Today I shall go to the shop to buy a new one and report on more when the next group I am guiding, goes on tour.

PS. I would like to mention Sabine Soler who gave me the idea to visit this beauty!
Thanks a lot!
