The Weissenstein is a mountain of the Jura range near Solothurn, Switzerland.

There is a chairlift from Oberdorf to the spa hotel on top of the mountain (length: 2339 m). The tunnel of the railway line Solothurn-Moutier from Oberdorf to Gänsbrunnen on the other side was opened in 1908. The chairlift is crossing the railway track in front of the tunnel portal at Oberdorf, which is the only setting of this kind in Switzerland.

The pass road leading from the village of Oberdorf across the Weissenstein Pass (1279 m) to Gänsbrunnen is one of the steepest in Switzerland (20%).
