Tour description:

Visit the famous Schilthorn - Piz Gloria -  with its panoramic revolving restaurant as featured in the 1969 James Bond movie "On her Majesty's service." The summit is located at 2970 meters (9744 feet) above sea level.

We arrive after a scenic journey through Switzerland including the Bernese Oberland around 11 AM at the base station from where we start our way to the peak.

Included is as well a stop at an intermediate station where you can do a thrilling walk on the cliff platform and where you can take great pictures from a viewing platform.

We arrive at the summit station, located at 2970 meters (9744 feet) above sea level in the Bernese Alps just before 1 PM. Just in time for you to have lunch with the best views of the Alps at the revolving restaurant. This panoramic restaurant was featured in the 1969 James Bond movie "On her Majesty's service." A gorgeous 360-degree view over the Bernese Alps will complement your delicious meal.

We have plenty of time on top (2-3 hours, your choice) before we return to Zurich.

On our way back we visit the beautiful car-free village of Mürren and idyllic Lauterbrunnen.
