James Bond returns to Sölden...
007 cinematic installation at 3048 metres altitude in Sölden from winter 2017/2018
Sölden, one of the most outstanding shooting locations for the current James Bond blockbuster SPECTRE, caused a furore world-wide. From the Ötztal Glacier Road as the setting of a speedy car chase, to ice Q, the architectural masterpiece at the summit of the Gaislachkogl, the Hotspot of the Alps has provided an ideal setting for adrenaline-packed action scenes. And now there is yet another highlight to the James Bond story in Sölden.
At 3048 metres altitude, next to the gourmet restaurant ice Q, a cinematic installation which is one of a kind in the world, will be dedicated to the British secret agent. In conjunction with renowned architect Johann Obermoser and inspired by the visionary work of James Bond Production Designer Sir Ken Adam, Cable Car Company Sölden is creating an impressive building on the summit of the Gaislachkogl. In charge of the design and development of the 007 cinematic installation are Creative Director Neal Callow – the Art Director on the James Bond films Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre – along with American creative agency Optimist Inc., who have already implemented impressive projects for Google, Facebook and Nike.
With the new 007 project, Cable Car Company Sölden has once again demonstrated that they are among the most innovative cable car companies in the world and with their architectural & technical master strokes like ice Q, the BIG 3 platforms and the Gaislachkogl and Giggijochbahn, are setting new standards in the sector.
What exactly it is that awaits visitors on the summit of the Gaislachkogl from this winter is still a secret. But this much we know: James Bond fans and film buffs will be offered a spectacular adventure without equal. Further information: www.007.com

“We’re delighted to be partnering with EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to bring Bond back to Sölden by creating a truly unique experience in the heart of the Tyrol region. Together with the many exciting and varied activities available in the area, this James Bond installation will strengthen Sölden’s position as a year-round destination for sports and entertainment.”

The most spectacular filming location in the Alps

Pure. Breathtaking. Incomparable. In SPECTRE, ice Q is inspiring as the futuristic Hoffler Clinic at 3048 metres altitude, providing a stunning panorama to the impressive Ötztal mountains. In real life ice Q is an exclusive gourmet restaurant – managed by Sölden’s 5-star hotel Das Central – inspiring with its exquisite Alpine cuisine and speciality wines, such as the three country wine PINO 3000. Due to its special location on the summit of the Gaislachkogl and the stylish, contemporary design, with its 900 m² comprehensive glass facade, ice Q is one of the most spectacular buildings in the Alpine area. The renowned architecture firm Obermoser were responsible for the architectural design. In 2010 they were also involved in the construction of the new Gaislachkoglbahn, one of the highest 3S triple rope gondolas in the world. With the new Giggijochbahn, the most high performance monocable ropeway in the world and which went into service in November 2016, architect Johann Obermoser has set new standards in terms of modern architecture.
