Sölden and Spectre

Hotspot in the alps

In 2015 the film crew for the 24th James Bond film, SPECTRE, arrived in Sölden. Locations in and around the resort were used in the film. The ice Q restaurant at the top of the Gaislachkogl Peak became the Hoffler Klinik where James Bond meets Madeleine Swann. This location is also where the snow chase began. Villain Hinx, and his henchman, kidnap Madeleine and drive off down the mountain whilst James Bond pursues them in a plane. Some of the action took place in the tunnel between the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers and adjacent glacier road.

The Gaislachkogl gondola station at the mid-station also featured in a tense sequence involving Q.

Producer's request: "What we need is an extreme mountain road for action-packed chase scenes where Bond in an airplane hunts the villains right through the high Alpine mountain world. Amidst a scenic winter landscape. Can you do that?" Of course! You can even experience it firsthand when skiing down on Piste no. 30 leading from Rettenbach Glacier to the valley floor.

Glass-covered, spectacular, unique and one of the main reasons why Sölden was chosen as a filming location: fine dining in the ice Q gourmet restaurant at the highest levels – both culinary delights and breathtaking high-altitude location (3048 m) await our guests. But in the movie this futurist building has a different purpose. All we are allowed to tell you: not only snow is coming out of the cannons!

middle station

Probably the most modern mountain gondola in the Alps makes the best backdrop for a wintry James Bond Movie. The state-of-the-art middle station of Gaislachkogl Mountain Gondola has become a part of the action movie as well. A couple of film scenes took place in the triple rope gondola on its way up to the peak. Simply enter the panoramic cabin and enjoy a breathtaking mountain gondola ride.
