Berner Oberland Sights

Schilthorn

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 11/14/2013

Fodor's Review

Mürren boasts some of the longest downhill runs because it is at the foot of the Schilthorn (9,748 feet) mountain, famed for its role in the James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The peak of this icy megalith is accessed by a four-stage cable-lift ride past bare-rock cliffs and stunning slopes. At each level you step off the cable car, walk across the station, and wait briefly for the next cable car. At the top is the much-photographed revolving restaurant

Piz Gloria, where you can see clips of the film. The cable-car station is in the town of Stechelberg, near the spectacular Mürrenbachfälle (Mürrenbach Falls).
