Piz Gloria / Schilthorn summit, Switzerland. This is the only revolving restaurant I'll ever admit visiting, and the only time I'll ever link to a James Bond website... The cable car to the top is very expensive, and the best discount is with a SwissRailPass (rather than a EurRail pass). The views are spectacular; check the webcam online to make sure the weather up top is clear before you go. The Bond movie is a must-see - vacation homework!
When I first booked my flight to Basel, there was one question on my mind: “How do you spend three days in Switzerland?” Although Switzerland is only a tenth of the size of California, that doesn’t mean that there’s not plenty to do in the country! I fell in love with Switzerland quicker than you can say ‘fondue’!
Switzerland has some of the most charming Christmas Markets - Basel, Bern and Zurich. This picture is of Zurichs & Christkindlimarkt; which is in a railway station & is Europes largest indoor Christmas market. The enormous tree is truely spectacular with its 5000+ Swarovski crystal ornaments.
