Trips in Switzerland

BOND, JAMES BOND, or agent 007 was performing here in the movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. With the still relevant key words for this location: Far Up! Far Out! Far More!, the film was released in 1969. A major part of it was filmed in the building now being the revolving restaurant Piz Gloria, the 007 museum and a souvenir shop. From the restaurant and the terraces, in 2970 meters above sea level, the view of more than 200 mountain peaks, including of course Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, is simply exceptional! To reach Schilthorn we went by 4 aerial cable cars, beginning in Stechelberg (not far from Lauterbrunnen). The total travel time is normally just over 30 minutes. BUT, make a stop over after the 3rd ride, on the Birg station. Here you can “enjoy” first the Skyline Walk and then the Thrill Walk, if you dare!! 🙂 A 200 meters long path, literally on the outside of the Birg rock!!! Difficult to describe – see the pictures. 🙂 First enjoy the view, then look down….waaaaaahh! and follow the path, it just gets worse! 🙂 After accomplishing this scary activity, continue to Piz Gloria and enjoy a well deserved brunch or lunch, while observing the mountains passing by outside the revolving restaurant.
