Swiss Post to issue stamps commemorating Schilthorn-Piz Gloria’s fiftieth anniversary.

Piz Gloria 50th anniversary stamps

The stamps are available in sheets of eight and have a face value of 1 Swiss Franc. The stamps have been released to commemorate the opening of the last stretch of the Schilthorn cable car in 1967 as well as the revolving restaurant that opened on the summit two years later.

That restaurant, of course, is Piz Gloria and appeared in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969). Ever since it has remained a favourite destination for Bond fans. From the heights of Piz Gloria you get a stunning view of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau as well as many other peaks.

The stamps are available online from Swiss Post here and here. They are available from 2nd March 2017.
