Episode 7: Planning your visit to the Schilthorn

August 31, 2020 Last Updated on January 27, 2023

In Episode 7, I chat with Alan Ramsay, Sales Manager for the Schilthorn.  We discuss how to get to the Schilthorn, things to do on the mountain (which was the setting for the James Bond movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”), and why it makes a wonderful excursion when visiting the Jungfrau Region. 

Alan also shares why he loves the village of Murren (gateway to the Schilthorn) so much and, when it comes to a deciding between Jungfraujoch or Schilthorn, why he thinks the Schilthorn should be your top choice.


Show Notes

You’ll find lots of useful information, including timetables for the Schilthorn cableway, on the Schilthorn website. Visit the ‘summer’ section for details on hiking and the via Ferrata, and the ‘winter’ section for details on skiing.

As Alan mentions in the podcast, holders of a Swiss Travel Pass receive a significant discount on their ticket from Murren to the Schilthorn. Find out more about the Swiss Travel Pass here.
