Piz Gloria
Piz Gloria is the name of the revolving restaurant on the Schilthorn near Mürren in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland. The only public access is by cable car. The cable car station and the restaurant were designed by the Bernese architect Konrad Wolf. The Piz Gloria restaurant claims to be the world's first revolving restaurant, although others already existed, such as the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

In James BondEdit

Piz Gloria was prominently featured in the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service as the headquarters of villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld and his 12 beautiful (and brainwashed) Angels of Death. Inside the Piz Gloria contains a laboratory for creating biological warfare agents for Blofeld's agricultural plot. The clinic is destroyed after Draco's men detonated the bombs inside the clinic.

As the owner of Piz Gloria had run out of money during its construction, it was unfinished when the filmmakers were seeking locations. EON Productions paid to finish it in return for exclusive use of the property during filming.
