Schilthorn Tours

9 reviews
Schilthorn
It might not be a household name, but with a panorama spanning some of Europe's most iconic peaks—including Jungfrau, the Eiger, and even the distant Mont Blanc—the Schilthorn summit offers one of Switzerland's most spectacular mountain views. The 9,744-foot (2,970-meter) mountain lies in the Bernese Alps and is famous for its revolving mountaintop restaurant, Piz Gloria, which was featured in the 1969 James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

The Basics
The star attraction of Schilthorn is the view from the 650-foot (200-meter), open-air Thrill Walk observation pathway, but visitors can also dine at the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant, browse the interactive Bond World exhibition and 007 Walk of Fame, and visit the Igloo7 snow igloo.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Cable cars run every half hour to and from the summit of Schilthorn.
  • Wrap up warm—the high altitude means it will be chilly on the mountaintop even in summer.
  • The cable car and summit restaurant are wheelchair accessible.
  • A mountaintop gift shop is open to the public.

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.

When to Get There
It's possible to visit Schilthorn all year-round, although the cable cars are closed for maintenance for three weeks in November and one week in April. The most popular times to visit are the summer months of July and August, and the winter holidays during December and January. Visiting outside of these times can mean fewer crowds and lower accommodation and tour prices.

Outdoor Activities at Schilthorn
The rugged slopes of Schilthorn offer ample opportunities for hiking, and summer visitors can tackle the Mürren via ferrata or go paragliding over Schilthorn and the Lauterbrunnen Valley. In winter , skiing, snowboarding, and sledging are popular pastimes, with highlights including the Skyline Snowpark, the Schilthorn-Engetal piste, and the Diretissima piste—the steepest in the Jungfrau region with a gradient of 88 percent.
