The view from the summit of Schilthorn. image page
Schilthorn is a famous viewpoint in the Bernese Oberland, with a great view of some of the surrounding peaks. The Schilthorn is a famous tourist attraction in-part due to the 1969 movie of Her Majesty's Secret Service with main character James Bond. On the summit stands a rotating restaurant, one of 3 in Switzerland. The views from this vantage are some of the best in the Alps and that is that is the main attraction.
From the Schilthorn you see: Wetterhorn, Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Äbeni Flue, Mittaghorn (Lauterbrunner), Grosshorn (Lauterbrunner), Breithorn (Lauterbrunner), Tschingelhorn, Gspaltenhorn, Bütlasse, and the Blümlisap Massive (Morgenhorn, Weisse Frau, and Blümlisalphorn).
Getting ThereVia Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen towards Mürren (walk, cable or train). From Mürren you can go to the top via three routes:
1. via Schreckhornhütte in the Engital
2. via Schilttal
3. Via Rotstockhütte in the Sefinental
It's not recommended to climb the last part to the top when it's wet, when you are not an experienced climber..
