There is a cable-lift from Lauterbrunnen/Steckelberg via Gimmelwald and Mürren which allows easy access all the way to the summit. Because of this, the summit is often crowded. Only a few people do actually hike the whole way up and down the mountain. Before the filming of the movie, the construction of the restaurant came to a grinding halt when the project ran out of money. The building was completed with assistance from the films budget. There are several tributes to the film inside the building. In the movie, Schilthorn is called Piz Gloria. This name has remained popular for people visiting the restaurant, but it is not the true name of the mountain.
From the Schilthorn you see: Wetterhorn
, Äbeni Flue
, and the Blümlisap Massive
(Morgenhorn, Weisse Frau, and Blümlisalphorn).
Via 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..
