Film 2015 Solden Austria


In the film James Bond tracks down Dr Madeleine Swann, played by Léa Seydoux, to the mountaintop Hoffler Klinik. The Klinik is in reality the Ice Q restaurant at the summit of Gaislachkogl Mountain in Solden, Austria. Its temperature is kept at 1℃ to avoid tampering with its frosty foundation.

The escape from the Klinik takes place on the mountains glacier road with a convoy of Land Rovers and a plane all involved in the snowy drama which unfolds.

In an example of which came first, the restaurant and lift station used in the film is now the location of one of the best experiences for Bond fans. 007 ELEMENTS is a cinematic installation that features interactive exhibits of the action sequences from SPECTRE, shot in the area. One of the heavily modified Land Rovers sits on the top of the peak. This particular one was bought from the film by Harry Metcalfe, the well-known motoring enthusiast and farmer. He made a video about visiting the resort that's available on Youtube.
