Bond is back in Switzerland!

The amazing 2970m high Piz Gloria revolving restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn, up above Murren and Lauterbrunnen in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland, was one of the most dramatic sets in the 1969 Bond Film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.

Fortunately with the help of the special effects of the day, the Restaurant remained intact after the film! From the end of end of June 2013, Bond will be back at Schilthorn, with the opening of the new BOND WORLD 007.

Visitors to this stunning part of the World will be able to take the cable car from Gimmelwald or Murrren up to Piz Gloria and visit Bond in this newly opened indoor 400m2 exhibit, celebrating the featuring of Piz Gloria in the Bond movie. Touristorama guides take visitors through the various stages of story of the movie, with a host of fun interactive exhibits which test the James Bond skills of visitors.

An in-house cinema shows clips from the iconic Bond movie, and a panoramic video showcases the stunning beauty of the Alpine world surrounding the Schilthorn, with fascinating insights and views of the area.

And don’t forget to take in some of the stunning views in the 360 degree revolving restaurant, and enjoy the amazing hiking on offer.

There are many great things to do in Murren, and the surrounding areas such as Lauterbrunnen, Interlaken and Grindelwald. Activities like the amazing First Flyer (4 rider side by side zip wire), the dramatic and powerful Trummelbach Falls, the Jungfrau Railway (Europe’s highest railway taking you up to all year round snow!) and the Murren to Grimmelwald Via Ferrata.

A stunning place to visit.
