It’s Swiss Sunday. It’s time to be shaken not stirred.
We start again from the stunning mountain village of Murren and we are heading up to the top of the Schilthorn. A world famous mountain standing at 9744ft.
Only two ways to the top. A series of Cable Car rides. Not for the faint hearted. Once it was the longest aerial cable car in the world.
The other way is to try the gruelling 5 hour trek up a narrow mountain dirt path.
The mountain was featured in the 1969 James Bond movie – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. At the top you can visit the Bond Museum. It even has a cinema. The photo below is one of the mountains promo stills.
The Schilthorn has a wonderful revolving restaurant. It slowly turns and completes a full rotation in just under one hour. It’s a tremendous experience sat having lunch and gazing out of the window as the stunning mountain scenery moves slowly round.
There is a third way down but it’s not for me…
Suspect my butt would need a bigger chute.
Apparently you can see over 200 different summits from here. I remember son telling me
Close down the cable car and this would be the perfect place to live.
It really would be. A little chilly during winter but those views. You would never tire of them.
