A Mountaintop Lair
Although George Lazenby's On Her Majesty's Secret Service may be an acquired taste for Bond-o-philes, scenes from the 1969 film shot in Switzerland at Blofeld's mountaintop research institute are some of the franchise's most iconic images. They were filmed at the top of Schilthorn in the Bernese Alps, specifically at Piz Gloria. The site for filming was a revolving restaurant then under construction and partially completed with funds from the Bond production company. Today, the restaurant is so Bond-themed that it could be the closest you can come to a Bond theme park. There's a Bond exhibit/museum next to the restaurant called Bond World 007 that offers two virtual rides (a helicopter ride and a snowmobile one) plus a lot of museum-quality Bond memorabilia on the walls. The restaurant's famous Bond-themed brunch/breakfast features cold champagne and martinis shaken, not stirred, of course. Check out the In Pursuit of 007 itinerary, created by Shelby Donley of Camelback Odyssey Travel, on AFAR Journeys.
