Schilthorn - Piz Gloria

On the Schilthorn, at almost 3000 metres you get an exhilarating view of the highest and most famous trinity of the Bernese alps, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau (weather permitting!). The top station features the revolving Piz Gloria restaurant which turns full circle in about 55 minutes. The station was the setting for the 1968 James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

The interactive exhibition Bond World 007 will remind you of all the great moments in the film. Getting up there is quite an exciting adventure: from Stechelberg four sections of cable cars take you up to the peak in just over 30 minutes (there is an all new Skyline Walk at Birg stop). It is possible to hike to the top, but only for experienced hikers. However the region around Mürren offers many hiking opportunities for less accomplished hikers too. From Zurich, take a train to Interlaken (change in Bern), at Interlaken change to the one to Lauterbrunnen. From there a bus takes you to Stechelberg valley station (approx. 3 hours all in all).
