Schilthorn - Piz Gloria, Murren
(4.4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Touch the sky by climbing to the top of Schilthorn - Piz Gloria, offering panoramic views of more than two hundred other Alpine summits. The cable car can take you from the small town of Murren to the top of this 2,970 m (9,744 ft) peak in just over half an hour, though you can also choose to hike up a series of narrow but well-marked paths. The summit features a observation platform and a panoramic restaurant, which revolves 360 degrees and rewards visitors with unobstructed views stretching all the way to the Black Forest in Germany. If you prefer to stay at lower altitudes, visit the ski areas located just above Murren.

  • I already wrote a bunch on Piz Gloria for the restaurant bit ( you can read that in my profile), but I will reiterate that this is one of the most amazing places on the Earth. The views are indescriba...  more »
  • Really worth a visit, compared with other tops of Jungfrau mountain, the Matterhorn, the Zugspitze, this was for us the best of all! The look is beautiful, from there you have a panoramic view of the Alps, and the Jungfrau, Eiger and Mönch. The Organization and barbaric infrastructure. All very organized, and without that the feeling of melting in an indoor environment. Shops, a revolving restaurant, and an interactive Museum of the "007" pretty cool, since one of the movies was made there. In fact since you put your feet on the telefèrico, you already get in the mood of the film. Super recommend.

  • Piz Gloria. Location of the 007 film is must-see for those coming to Switzerland. Unlike the Top of Europe, here you feel really in the Alps. Perhaps for the least amount of tourists, or for greater contact with nature, since the beginning of the climb in Murren. Come early and enjoy the beautiful landscape. Have a coffee with cognac in the revolving restaurant.

  • Amazing place, fun James Bond museum/exhibits and the best bathrooms ever.
  • Views were amazing, with 360 rotation, but do not get the James Bond burger.
  • A bit expensive but worth it for the views and the experience.
  • You get a splendid view by just sitting there and relaxing
  • Good place to bit dinner have a look round
