We took a cable car from Gimmelwald to Mürren, a beautiful, idyllic and traffic-free mountain village, nestled amidst the enchanting mountain scenery. We hardly saw any villagers there, or perhaps it was spring, not for winter sports and thus, lesser tourists. We strolled to the next cable car station to bring us up to our destination.
Mt. Schilthorn soars to 3000m high and is the Bernese Oberlands highest altitude skiing area. The steep snowy slopes provided the perfect location for thrilling action scenes in the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service“.
We were actually quite disappointed as we were within an enclosed area away from the snow and the enclosure was just a small area around the revolving restaurant. Rules are meant to break! We playfully crossed over the railings but realized the danger as the steps were slippery and the slope was steep.
