James Bond "SPECTRE"
007 IN A SECRET MISSION IN SÖLDEN IN TYROL

Sölden, the hot spot in the Alps, combines sports, action and enjoyment at the highest level plus snow reliability from October through May. Due to this unrivaled variety also James Bond himself felt stirred and shaken in the „Spectre“ blockbuster, after shooting the movie‘s coolest action scenes in Sölden.

Bond and the Mountains, an almost traditional alliance continued in Sölden. The world famous winter destination has a lot to offer: BIG3 – three ski mountains higher

than 3000 meters – plus 145 slope kilometers, yearly held Ski World Cup Opening, Adrenalin Cup, culinary peak pleasures at the ice Q gourmet restaurant, unique après-ski fun, top concerts and event highlights scheduled all winter.

Even Daniel Craig as Agent 007 can‘t resist: Sölden is absolutely sexy. Reason enough for producer Sam Mendes to choose the hot spot in the Alps as one of the top film locations and „fantastic places“ for the „Spectre“ James Bond adventure.

THE EXCLUSIVE FILMING LOCATION IN SÖLDEN

Gourmet restaurant ice Q

The ice Q restaurant and Agent 007 filming spot on Gaislachkogl might be quite as legendary as James Bond himself. The gourmet restaurant opened in 2013, ranks among the most spectacular Alpine buildings due to its location at 3048 meters above sea level. Characterized by its purist architecture, the 900 m² glass facades are glittering in the bright sunshine, overlooking the breathtaking scenery of the Ötztal Alps.

„It‘s almost surrealistic, it resembles a painting,“ stated actor Dave Bautista when he first arrived on top of the peak. The ice Q glass cube plays an important role in the movie. Not as a gourmet temple but as a futurist hospital where villain Christoph Waltz pursues his devilish plans… Also the peak of Gaislachkogl is one of the photo call spots in the new „Spectre“ movie.

WHAT DOES SÖLDEN EXPECT FROM SPECTRE?

“A vast number of „James Bond“ and „Spectre“ announcements in the international press and innumerous press releases about Sölden have added to very positive image building. The overall PR value for Sölden is surely enormous”, emphasises Jakob Falkner, CEO of the Cable Car Company Sölden. Even the decision to take film scenes in Sölden for the first „Winter Bond“ after many years, is a great honor and distinction for the holiday resort.

In all probability the shooting locations will become highly coveted in the filming scene, especially when it comes to winter shootings. On occasion of the international movie shooting start producer Sam Mendes announced the following in front of the international press: „We are taking Bond back to the Alps, to the snow again, in Sölden in Austria.“

The first „behind the scenes“ video released by Sony Pictures focused almost entirely on the movie shooting in Sölden. Right at the start Bond Girl Léa Seydoux officially declared: „We are in Austria in a beautiful place called Sölden.“ The marvelous video was clicked on YouTube millions of times within only a few weeks – months before the official film premiere. In the course of several press statements, Ötztal‘s number one winter destination was mentioned as one of the main movie shooting locations.
