How restaurateurs surprise tourists

The most visited places while traveling are all kinds of cafes, bars, or pubs. Tourists are happy to visit inconspicuous coffee shops, buy food from street vendors, and book tables in upscale establishments. It's another way to get to know the country you're visiting. This is how you can try authentic dishes and experience new flavors.

To attract travelers more and win in the competition, restaurateurs come up with non-standard concepts. The emphasis is not on food and drinks but on ideas, original presentation or interior. And it's worth noting that they are really winning in this race.

Piz Gloria (Schilthorn, Switzerland)

If you are planning to visit the Interlaken ski resort this winter, you should stop by the restaurant where one of the Bond films was filmed. The first thing that will impress guests is the incredible views. "Swiss Hut is located in the middle of snow-capped mountains and has a special observation deck. So while the order is being prepared, you can admire the mountain scenery and take a few photos as a souvenir.

Of course, as expected, there are specialties and cocktails named after James Bond. But it's not this fact that attracts visitors. It's the thematic interactive exhibition dedicated to the famous film that is popular. You can also go skiing or snowboarding here as there are several trails near Piz Gloria. By the way, the building itself is located on the top of the Schilthorn mountain. It is not very comfortable to get there on foot, so there is a cable car.
