Actual place and locationRathausplatz - Town Hall Square, Thun, Switzerland
What happens here in the book: Bond remembers what does Rathausplatz look like just before he and Fredericka "Flicka" von Grüsse arrive there.
Visited by 007 Travelers: 2014

"Within ten minutes, they were settled into her three-year-old white Porsche, which was in need of a wash, and heading out of Berne on route six, following the river Aare to Thun, the lovely old town which always reminded Bond of the Frankenstein story. If you stand in the small Town Hall Square - the Rathausplatz - in Thun, and look up beyond the Rathaus itself, you can see the great castle looming above you, and the whole view is reminiscent of every Frankenstein movie ever made"

"SPECTRE" problems in Rome continue

According to Mirror, the "SPECTRE" production is facing problems again.

Ponte Sisto bridge is supposed to be a "SPECTRE" filming location including a helicopter stunt, but the producers may now have to find a new spot for filming because the bridge is very special and significant due to its links to Pope Innocent X. Filming at the bridge has made the religious campaigners furious and they are protesting.

Photo: Mirror

“Some campaigners are concerned about damage to the bridge, which dates from the 1400s, others are upset over the religious connection.
The bridge is said to be haunted by the ghost of Donna Olimpia Pamphili, Pope Innocent X’s lover who crossed it each night on her way to his bed. Believers get quite upset by the prospect of disturbing spirits.
Sam (Mendes) has already had to change one major scene, now it looks like he’s going to have to go back to the drawing board on this one.”
The unnamed source in Italy.
