not only for James Bond-fans !
1)You may take the train from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen and change there to the bus taking you to Stechelberg. There you change to the Schilthorn-cablecar, that starts there with the 1st of its 4 sections in Stechelberg.
2)The other possibility is to take the train to Lauterbrunnen, Get out of the train at the station and walk about 3 minutes through a tunnel to the cable-car-station. You take first the cablecar from Lauterbrunnen to Gruetschalp and change there to the train going to Winteregg and Muerren. From there you take a walk of about 15-20 minutes across the village of Muerren, before you get to the cable-car-station to Schilthorn / Piz Gloria.
For both of these possibilities you should know :
Untill Muerren you may use your ordinary train-tickets, Eurotrain-, Interrail-tickets, Jungfraubahnen-Pass, Regional-Pass Berner Oberland etc.
In my opinion a visit to Schilthorn makes sense only in perfect weather-conditions !!
Even when you travel with any of the pre-paid train-passes, you still have to pay 32 sfr extra for the last 2 segments of the cablecar (Muerren-Birg and Birg-Schilthorn).
The ordinary price Muerren-Schilthorn is about 65 sfr !!
You can also get a "Muerren-Schilthorn-Ferienpass" - for 135 sfr you can use the following means of transportation without restrictions for 6 consecutive days:
the cablecars between Stechelberg & Schilthorn, betweeen Muerren & Allmendhubel, and all the trains between Lauterbrunnen & Muerren + the postbus Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg !
Lockers for your luggage are available at the station of Schilthornbahn in Muerren !
