“Absolutely Incredible!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The view from the top is breathtaking. When you reach the top, you are higher than many of the surrounding mountain peaks, which makes you feel like you are on the top of the world. Its surreal. There is a revolving restaurant too at the top! Do inquire about discounts for the cable car journey at your hotel reception.

“Beautiful journey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The aspect we liked the most in this Schilthorn experience was the fact that we took 4 or 5 (don't recall exactly) different cable cars along the journey to the top - the restaurant Piz Cloria.
In every change, we could stroll trough the intermediate places, places like Murren - incredible peaceful.
It's better to stop in the way down to arrive quickly when you are going up, so you don't risk to have some fast weather change at the top.
Arriving at the top, you get the best possible views of the classic Swiss alps.
In my opinion, it's a much better view than you get from the Jungfrau train station - let's say it's more "dramatic". And it's less expensive as well. We took the early ticket along with the breakfast - we all love the experience.

Be sure to check the forecast to choose the best day/hour to go. It's pointless to move up when it's cloudy

“Breathtaking View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I wanted to go early in the AM before it got crowded.It was overcast in Murren,but the station for the cable car had closed circuit TV showing the top was clear and sunny,so I bought a ticket.Since it was overcast in Murren,there were only four of us on the cable car going up.As you started to the top,it was so socked in that you couldn't see anything.About half way to the top,the cable car broke out of the clouds,and you saw the snow covered Alps all around,with a brilliant blue sky behind them.This was much more dramatic than if it had been clear on the ground.There is an observation platform at the top, outside of the building.The views are fantastic.You can even hike out from the platform(which I did to get away the crowds after I had been there for several hours),and there is a trail back down to Murren if you are so inclined(I wasn't).There is a small theater in the building that shows part of an old James Bond movie that was made there.

“Great Overall Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We made the trip up to Schilthorn in late October. The weather was warm and sunny and the views from the top were awesome. We did not eat in the restaurant as previous reviews said the food wasn't very good and was overpriced. An hour at the top should be sufficient if you do not eat in the restaurant.

“A rotating restaurant on a mountaintop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

If you're in the neighborhood, how could you pass up a rotating restaurant built high up on a mountaintop. Just an amazing place.
