Berner Alpen Things to Do: 66 reviews and 201 photos
Schilthorn is another must in the Berner Alpen, not only because it is well known since the James Bond Movie "In her Majesty's Serviec" was made there in 1968. Schilthorn is also called Piz Gloria since the James-Bond-movie and still today plenty of tourists mainly go up there in order to see the place where the movie was made. With a hight of 2970 meters Schilthorn is one of the most famous mountains of Switzerland and it offers a perfect 360 degree-panorama including Eiger, Moench, Jungfrau,Mont Blanc, the Lake Thun, Schyniggeplatte, the mountains around Bern and Fribourg and plenty of others.
In the souvenir-shop on ground-floor (USA:1st floor) you even have a section in the self-service-bar, decorated in 007-style , and of course the shops offer a wide range of 007-souvenirs !!
On 2nd floor you will find a revolving restaurant and there is a large platform behind the restaurant-building as well - the perfect place for your pictures !!
From that platform / terrace you may step down the mountain and walk down to Muerren, BUT it is ONLY possible and advisable for experienced and well-equipped hikers (or Paragliders, as you may see in my sporting-tips) !!
More about prices, timetables etc. - take a look at my transportation-tips !
Directions: You may get on top of Schilthorn by cablecar from Muerren or from Stechelberg. You have to change cabins 2 times when you start in Stechelberg.
