Schilthorn – 007 James Bond

The aluminum-covered revolving restaurant "Piz Gloria" on the Schilthorn was used in the filming of a few key scenes in the James Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". There is a permanent exhibition that reminds one of this fact.

"Piz Gloria" is the name of the scenic film mountain at 1300m above the traffic-free Mürren resort. And the scenery and panoramic views in front of the main alpine ridge are pretty impressive too.

Métro Lausanne – true underground rail

Lausanne boasts the world’s smallest automatic Metro. The new 6-kilometer line connects the pier of Ouchy via the Lausanne Train Station and the Old Town with the Croisette district. Approximately one half of the route is underground.

The railway line through to Croisettes beneath the Lausanne station presents the world’s greatest subway drop – an amazing 336-meter altitude difference, with maximum 12% gradient.

Kronenberg – the family mountain

The Kronberg (1663m) is the family mountain in Appenzellerland, offering many attractions both in the summer and the winter. The valley station of the aerial cableway is next to the Jakobsbad Train Station, high up in the Gonton valley.

As conglomerate rock in the forming of the Alps, Kronenberg precedes the Alpstein. A cable car takes you from the Jakobsbad station to the vantage point with mountain guesthouse.
