On their way up the glorious Schilthorn, also known as the Piz Gloria, the cable cars of the Schilthorn cableway travel along 7,000 metres of cable and surmount an altitude difference of 2,103 metres in a journey comprising four stages: from Stechelberg to Gimmelwald, Mürren and Birg, before finally reaching the summit.

But it's not only the length of the cableway that constitutes a record, the restaurant on the 3,000-metre-high peak is also unique: it was constructed in 1969 as the world's first revolving restaurant. The aluminum-covered revolving restaurant "Piz Gloria" 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.
