    September 15, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅

    Today was our last chance to go to Schilthorn, (2,970 metres (9,744 ft)), which lies above the village of Mürren. It featured in the 1969 James Bond movie 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. It was the hideout of Bond's enemy Blofeld, and the place was called Piz Gloria for that occassion. That name is still being used for the Schilthorn. From Mürren a cable car leads to its summit where you get the most amazing 360-degree panoramic view of the “Swiss skyline” including Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. We had a cuppa in the revolving restaurant Piz Gloria and watched the world go round - the top of the world that is.
    We stopped off at Birg - where you get a bottomless perspective from its “Skyline Walk” and the “Thrill Walk” - by this time the clouds came rolling in so it was 10 second glimpses of the mountains from here. Not to worry - we could not have asked for better views from the Schilthorn. Enjoyed the whole 007 experience too. We now leave Mürren and head to Schaffhausen, on the upper Rhine River, in a wine-growing area near the German border.

    Schilthorn. WOW !!!!!!!!

    May 9, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅

    Wow is international language for 'I do not believe what I am looking at, and clearly no one else in this cable car does either'. It's spoken in unison by all the very moment we break through the clouds. I don't have language, English or otherwise, to say any more. A few photos try in their own way. We've waited days for the weather to clear, and now this is the moment. Its all very very blue, which is very much loved. A tasty lunch topped it all off.Read more

    Up Schilthorn

    July 31, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅

    We had breakfast at the top of Schilthorn today which is two cable car trips from Murren where we are staying.

    We arrived to find the rotating restaurant was giving us a 360 degree view of fog. Then the sun found us...
