Thrill Walk & more… Schilthorn, Switzerland, summer ’16

schilthorn, thrill walk, bond, mountain, alpsNews Mürren – Schilthorn, Summer 2016
There’s a new adrenaline-boosting highlight taking shape at Birg. About to join the already hugely popular SKYLINE WALK, the THRILL WALK starts at the sun terrace and leads straight into the perpendicular walls of the Birg massif. The new walkway nestles against the cliff, running beneath the observation deck and cableway before re-emerging on “terra firma” below the cableway station. The floor of the walkway is anything but firm – an interplay of steel grating and reinforced glass makes for thrilling sensations, while the steel mesh railings enhance the transparency of the structure. And you’ll certainly need James Bond’s nerves of steel to traverse, climb and crawl through the alternative walkway sections: these spine-tingling challenges are suspended below the walkway and secured only by nets!
FLOWER TRAIL . Mürren – Allmendhubel
The floral discovery trail at Allmendhubel is about to get even more colourful. The popular FLOWER TRAIL is undergoing a redesign ahead of summer 2016. The widened path leads past 150 different alpine flowers including gentians, alpine roses and varieties of edelweiss. This is a true feast for the senses with clear mountain air, fragrant blooms and magnificent views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau amidst the infinite tranquillity of the Alps.
Renovated summit building . Schilthorn – Piz Gloria
The Schilthorn summit building will be shining in new splendour this summer. The new features at 2970 metres above sea level include the extended and modernised Souvenir Topshop as well as a 220-square-metre coffee bar on the terrace level. There will also be a new 30 person-capacity elevator between the cable car exit level and sun terrace level. Structural measures are being implemented, energy efficiency upgraded and the toilet facilities are undergoing a complete renovation. The last of four renovation stages is scheduled for autumn 2016. Day-to-day operations and visitor flow will not be affected by the construction work.
James Bond 007 Brunch . Schilthorn – Piz Gloria
The James Bond 007 Brunch is replacing the James Bond 007 Breakfast Buffet. Enjoy an even more leisurely start to the day in our revolving restaurant with an array of delicacies and regional produce in front of a magnificent mountain backdrop. The James Bond 007 Brunch is served daily until 14.00 hrs.
Summer Sunset. Schilthorn – Piz Gloria
Summer Sunset is the name of our offer that ensures romantic moments in July and August. The cable cars of the Schilthorn Cableway run until 20:25 in the evening. A visit to the Schilthorn summit combined with a fine Sunset Menu in the 360°- restaurant is an unforgettable experience. At 2’970 meters above sea level, the sunset, overlooking a horizon of more than 200 Alpine peaks including the Swiss skyline of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau is incomparably beautiful.
