Many scenes were filmed at Piz Gloria for the 1969 James Bond 007 film On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Piz Gloria is located on top of Schilthorn, a 2,970 metre high summit in the #Bernese Oberland, #Switzerland, above Mürren. It's Blofeld's clinical research institute, and Bond spends some time there, eventually destroying the whole place. In real life though, the Bond production team actually helped financing the completion of the unique revolving restaurant .


Piz Gloria is well worth a visit. Not only is it a major Bond location, but as the longest aerial cableway in the Alps, the #Schilthorn/Piz Gloria provides stunning panoramic views over Switzerland. Over 200 mountain peaks in a spectacular landscape are revealed as the world's first revolving mountaintop restaurant slowly turns.
