50 years of Schilthorn - Piz Gloria special stamps

50 years of Schilthorn - Piz Gloria special stamps available!

(Without or with Interlaken Schilthorn Piz Gloria stamp)

A James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” (1969, starring George Lazenby) was filmed in and around the imposing building on the Schilthorn summit. 

The two special stamps marking the 50th anniversary show the revolving restaurant and the cable car, each in front of the “Swiss skyline” taking in the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The two sheetlets depict the complete route from the Stechelberg base station via Gimmelwald, Mürren and Birg to the Schilthorn summit.
