Swiss Alps - The Schilthorn Part II

The pictures ENLARGE if you click on them.
From the summit of the Schilthorn in the Alps you feel like you are on top of the world.



The revolving restaurant Piz Gloria is in the background of the photo. This was the principal filming location for the James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service.




We ate at the revolving restaurant Piz Gloria. We didn't have very high expectations for the food, but the meal and deserts were actually excellent.

View of the three mountains the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau from the restaurant Piz Gloria.
























View from inside the gondola heading back to the alpine town of Murren.
