The revolving restaurant is very nice. And the view from the top was amazing. Loved the cable car experience with 007 music in the background :)
They told us that from July2013 they would be opening a new level with all the filming about the james bond movie and museum kind of thing.

This was amazing. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it to see the views from the top.

The cable car ride is a trip. Out of all the ones we did on our journey in Austria and Switzerland, this cable car was the longest and highest.

Once at the top, the views of the mountains are all around you. It's unlike anything I've ever experienced.

Note: Make sure to check the local web cams (we had a channel in our room) to make sure the weather is good. It was cloudy most of our days in Murren, so we waited each morning to check and went up on a sunny day, even though it was cloudy down in the valley.

This was the location used in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. For Bond fans, it's cool to see this location if you've seen the film. They are opening a new James Bond attraction in a few months in the lower part of the building.

Despite the appearance of unfavorable weather in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, we took the chance and rode three lifts and one train to reach the Schilthorn from Lauterbrunnen. Weather cams are located at several points to help you decide upon whether or not to continue the trip. It costs about 93.60 CHF - Swiss Francs- per person for the round trip. Also check the weather forecasts on the Internet, and enlist the help of your hotel staff who know the area. When we arrived at the top, we could not see down into the Valley due to clouds. We could see over 200 snow-covered peaks which were glistening in the sun. The Piz Gloria revolving restaurant is also at the top, and we had a very leisurely lunch while viewing the peaks in all directions. Surprisingly, prices at the Piz Gloria were about the same as anywhere else in Switzerland. When the clouds engulfed the area we descended about halfway to Murren where we had the most magnificent view of the surrounding steep cliffs and snow covered mountain tops (less those few in the clouds). We visited here in late May, which usually is fine, but this year the weather wasn't cooperating. Nevertheless, we still had a wonderful day and saw overwhelming scenery. Assess the weather
and go up the mountain if it is at least 50-50 that the top will be clear. This will usually be in the morning, as the weather tends to deteriorate in the afternoon at this time of year.

This location was featured in one of the early James Bond films, On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The relevant scenes are even shown.

The main attraction is the revolving restaurant, the food is above average for this sort of tourist attraction, prices usual for Switzerland. Try to come on a clear day. Great cable car ride up.

This is something which one must see in Switzerland. The Gondola (cable car) ride from Stechelberg to the Schilthorn is amazing, the views are just wonderful, renders one speechless.
The whole region of Bernese Oberland is breathtaking beautiful. All the small villages around Interlaken are worth-seeing. Eg: Murren, Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, Kleine Scheidegg, Grutschalp. The train rides in this region offer even better views than the Glacier express itself.
I simply adore this region, it is like heaven on earth. I would love to do this trip again and again.
