    It is well known that people in Basel are generous. That is why the hikers from the Rheinknie are happy to share one of their insider tips with their colleagues from other regions of Switzerland: The round tour from Birstal to the Tafeljura around Hochwald and Gempen and back can also be done well in winter, as long as there is not too much snow. It is not uncommon for the locals to say that there are years when there is no snow at all. The ascent from Dornach-Arlesheim train station to Herrenmatt leads from the heavily populated and industrialized valley floor over the battlefield from the Swabian War of 1499 to the lonely forest of the Black Boy Country (this is the name of the northernmost part of the Solothurn Jura). The Berggasthof Herrenmatt is part of Hochwald. Nearby, a simple memorial commemorates the 1973 plane crash with 108 fatalities. The consistently well-marked route then crosses the Gempen plateau, protected as a landscape of national importance. The next stopovers are the village of Gempen and the Schartenflue with its observation tower and restaurant. This is where the descent to the next Schlosshof inn begins, where the short detour to the Dorneck castle ruins is worthwhile. After crossing the canton border from Solothurn to Baselland, the Arlesheim Ermitage awaits as a surprise, a park lined with rocks with walking paths, grottos and ponds. In the nearby village itself, the baroque cathedral church deserves a visit. If you want to spend the last kilometer of the road to the train station in Dornach-Arlesheim, you can get on the yellow BLT tram from Arlesheim to Basel's Bahnhofplatz.
