Telecabine auf den Schilthorn...

Taking the telecabine from Stechelberg to Schilthorn : Lauterbrunnen Valley, CH

While we were in the Lauterbrunnen valley, we decided to take the telecabine up to the top of the Schilthorn. This mountain featured prominently in the 1968 James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service. To get to the top, you can take a telecabine from Stechelberg (3,024 ft / 922 m) to Mürren (5,412 ft / 1,650 m). You transfer to another telecabine from Mürren to Birg (8,783 ft / 2,677 m) and from that to another that carries you from Birg to Schilthorn (9,744 ft / 2,970 m). The entire trip, including transfers, takes approximately 32 minutes.
