The Swiss love to cap their peaks with restaurants. One of the most popular is the Schilthorn's Piz Gloria, a revolving restaurant perched at 10,000 feet above sea level. Just after it was completed and before opening to the public in 1969, it was the famous and thrilling setting of key moments in the James Bond movie, On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
