Piz Gloria is the name of the revolving restaurant on the Schilthorn near Mürren in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland. The only public access is by cable car. The cable car station and the restaurant were designed by the Bernese architect Konrad Wolf. The Piz Gloria restaurant claims to be the world’s first revolving restaurant, although others already existed, such as the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

The name Piz Gloria originated in Ian Fleming’s James Bond novel On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1963).
