Art and Artichokes in Solothurn

We’ve realised for quite a while now that we don’t have many paintings or art pieces to hang on our walls. Save for a handful of pieces we received as gifts, our walls are bare.

So when we found out about an “Art Supermarket” in, of all places, Solothurn, we didn’t really have to think twice about going. We had nothing planned for that weekend, we had never been to Solothurn, and it was just an hour’s train ride. If we were lucky, we may even find a nice piece or two to start off our collection.

So off we went.



The Art Supermarket itself wasn’t too bad; all the artists featured were local, and there were quite a lot of pieces to choose from.

Solothurn itself has nothing much to offer, to be honest. It’s a quiet little town, with the requisite cathedral and river. And since we went there on a Sunday, the streets were almost empty.







Finding a place to eat on a Sunday is always a challenge, since almost everything’s closed. Luckily we found a place that was not only open, but also served decent food.


Oh anchovies. How I love you so.
You too, artichokes.
