Explore the secrets of Schilthorn

It only takes 30 minutes by cable car to the summit of the 2970m high Schilthorn. In front of the impressive panorama atop the 3km high Schilthorn, with Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, where the secret agent James Bond chased the bad guys there’s plenty to discover. The jewel in the crowd is the Bond World exhibit, which takes you into a world of its own and provides exciting details about “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” starring 007 actor George Lazenby. On the world’s first 007 Walk of Fame, stars from in front and behind the camera leave their mark on the legendary Bond filming location. 

After these exciting espionage experiences, the James Bond Brunch in the 360° restaurant Piz Gloria will taste even better. Located in the 360° restaurant Piz Gloria, the restaurant rotates around its own axis during the meal, passing more than 200 mountain peaks. Afterwards, the cable car takes you down to Birg. Once there, you have the opportunity for two more amazing walks. First, the Skyline Walk platform leads you over the vertical abyss and provides a beautiful panoramic view across the whole mountain range. Secondly, for those who have not experienced enough thrills can dare to venture onto the Thrill Walk. Featuring crawl spaces, glass bottom floors, cattle-grids and more, this 200m walk is sure to get the spine tingling as you travel along the imposing rock massif and get an unrestricted view into the bottomless pit.
