>> Which one do you think is the best?
I have only been to the revolving restaurants on the Schilthorn and Mittelallalin, so I can't compare them all.
The views from the Schilthorn and Mittelallalin restaurants are equally stunning, but different.
Mittelallalin, at an altitude of 3,500 metres above sea level, is the highest revolving restaurant in the world. The revolving restaurant on the Schilthorn is at a lower altitude (2,970 metres above sea level).
However, whilst the Schilthorn restaurant is perched on a peak, looking down on all the surrounding mountains, the Mittelallalin restaurant is nestled within the surrounding peaks on one side, with views across to other peaks on the other side. So although Mittelallalin is at a higher altitude, there are not the wide-ranging views from there that you see from the Schilthorn. At Mittelallalin you are closer to the surrounding mountain tops, and are within the surrounding landscape rather than being perched on top of it. I liked it very much.
The means of transport to each is also different, with the cable car trip to the Schilthorn being more dramatic than the trip to Mittelallalin by gondola and underground funicular.
I have previously posted photos from the Schilthorn, which you can see on the following page if you scroll down to my post of 1 March 2017, 10:23pm.
Below, I have attached some photos taken at Mittelallalin in September 2016.
