Sky High Dining: Piz Gloria, Murren, Switzerland

 It was the world’s first revolving restaurant on a mountain roost. Piz Gloria at 9,744 feet is so high it offers a true 360-degree view of 200 summits — including Monch, Jungfrau, and the infamous Eiger — as well as France’s Mont Blanc and Germany’s Black Forest. While perched precariously on Switzerland’s Schilthorn, your view may appear familiar. Piz Gloria was featured in 007’s Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Try the meat and cheese platters, it is a great way to sample Murren’s air-dried sausage and the region’s best cheese. Wash it down with a Swiss Rose and your have the fortitude to make it back down the mountain.
