Northface Hiking Trail Switzerland
This hiking mecca has plenty of great signs to direct you. This is the fantastic Northface Trail - it's about four miles. Take the funicular to Allmendhubel and hike back to Murren.

Ride the aerial cable car to the top of the Schilthorn. There is the panoramic revolving restaurant Piz Gloria at the summit, where the James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service was set. See panoramic views from the observation decks (free admission).

The view from our hotel room (Hotel Alpina, top corner suite #32 with wrap-around balcony) much bigger than I could capture in one photo - with a panoramic view of the towering alps on the edge of the 2,800-foot cliff.
