Schilthorn/Piz Gloria

Bond with mountain views? Then it’s got to be Schilthorn.

If you’re a fan of “Bond, James Bond,” then you’ll be a huge fan of Schilthorn in Switzerland —it’s where On Her Majesty’s Secret Service was filmed, and is, of course, home to the world’s longest aerial cable-car system. Here, marvel at the most stirring, panoramic views in Switzerland with over 200 mountain peaks and endless glaciers and lakes. Best of all, this spectacular scene-scape forms the dramatic backdrop to the Piz Gloria, the revolving mountaintop restaurant that pays homage to 007. Inside, 400 seats are arranged on two revolving solar-powered platforms, and its view extends from Mount Titlis to Mont Blanc and far across to the Black Forest. So sit back, relax, and savor the scenery of Switzerland. If you’re an early bird, enjoy the James Bond Breakfast buffet. Time for dinner? Then feast on Spaghetti James Bond. But first, sip a legendary “Martini, shaken not stirred” at the James Bond Bar.

  • From Lauterbrunnen, take a postal bus to Stechelberg, then a cable car to Mürren

Both rides take approximately one hour and are covered by the Swiss Pass.
