At 2970meters, the Schilthorn offers a panoramic 360-degree view of more than 200 peaks, including the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau summits, the last of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As one of the tallest mountains in the Bernese Alps, the Schilthorn is popular with thrill-seekers and nature lovers who are keen to drink in the fantastic views from the summit. Its popularity exploded even more when the 1969 James Bond movie “On Her Majesty Secret Service” was filmed there.
