Mürren - a former Walser settlement, which can still be seen today in the house construction and the coloring of the Mürrner dialect - is the highest permanently inhabited village in the canton of Bern and lies on a terrace at 1650m above the Lauterbrunnen valley. A cable car leads from Lauterbrunnen to the plateau, from Stechelberg an aerial cableway past thundering waterfalls and rugged rock faces in the middle of the car-free village of Mürren and on to the Schilthorn at 2970m.
The futuristic revolving restaurant on the Schilthorn had immediately convinced the makers of the Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" at the end of the 1960s: the scenes on the imaginary Piz Gloria had to be shot here... The film became a great success, the Schilthornbahn and that revolving restaurant as well. The magnificent 360° summit panorama encompasses the world-famous Alpine triumvirate of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, stretches as far as Mont-Blanc and the Black Forest.
