Schilthorn - Piz Gloria Ticket
Outstanding, this is definately one not to be missed. I've never seen views like it, every way you turned there was another stunning vista. Obviously there was a strong theme for Bond, but it was very well done and you weren't under pressure to buy all the souvenirs. We enjoyed the skyline walk and stopping of in Murren on the way down. It was a fantastic experience and probably the highlight of our trip.

Schilthorn - Piz Gloria Ticket
Amazing views! You have to really want to see this as it is not easy to access. Includes a drive or train ride, a bus ride, and 4 gondola rides in order to reach the top. Well worth it! Recommend an early start to beat the tour buses. We went straight to Schilthorn first, then took our time at each stop on our return, Birg, Murren. Schilthorn-Bond world and skyline view was amazing. Birg-"Thrill Walk" is an understatement. Murren-car free alpine ski village. Caution if claustrophobic, acrophobic, or elderly as the gondolas may be crowded with tourists and skiers.

Schilthorn - Piz Gloria Ticket
Excited to visit this attraction, on a Sunday afternoon. Booked tickets on line....easy. The cable cars were jam packed with like us tourists. People were pushing a shoving, selfie sticks being waved around, one hit me in the face...........it was so unpleasant. Long waits between the changing of cable cars. Once, at the Piz Gloria, the views were amazing, we ate in the restaurant, the food was to a good standard....the staff were so polite and friendly.....so gave a good tip. The return journey in the cable cars was even worse !

How to Get There

The Schilthorn Mountain is located in the Bernese Alps in central Switzerland, overlooking the Lauterbrunnen Valley in the Bernese Oberland. Access to the summit is via cable car from the village of Mürren, which can be reached by cable car from Stechelberg or Gimmelwald. The closest major resort is Interlaken, from where trains head to Lauterbrunnen and connect with Stechelberg by bus. A Swiss Travel Pass can give you unlimited access to trains and buses. It's also possible to hike to the summit from Mürren, a hike of about five hours along well-marked trails.
