5 October 2021


On 30 September the time had come: Daniel Craig flickered across the cinema screens again as James Bond. Together with the adventure world 007 ELEMENTS, Jakob Falkner, head of the Sölden cable cars and the TVB Ötztal extended invites to the Bond event. A highlight: the visit of art director Neil Callow and the original costume of Bond villain Safin.

Fans had to wait a long time, but on Thursday the 25th James Bond film "No Time To Die" (No Time To Die) reached domestic cinemas. Unfortunately, Bond did not have a car chase through the Ötztalin this film. Nevertheless, the valley has been gripped by Bond fever in recent days - because the tourism association and cable car boss Jakob Falkner extended invites to the exclusive Bond event. The event started with the film premiere on Thursday in Innsbruck, after which it went straight to the Hotel Bergland in Sölden. Daniel Craig stayed in the suite on the fourth floor of the house during the filming of "Spectre". A guestbook entry by Craig bears witness to his stay.

The next day we continued in the 007 ELEMENTS, the worldwide unique Bond experience world. From the original airplane to the Omega watch from Spectre - here fans of the films will find a collection of the James Bond story. This year, the installation already has one more highlight: guests can admire the snowsuit and mask of the Bond villain Safin! At the event, art director Neal Callow personally accompanied the guests through the world of experience and answered questions about the Bond films, before the guests moved on to the "Hoffler Klinik" - the Ice Q gourmet restaurant.

Sölden: the place-to-be this winter

But not only the 007 Elements and the Ice Q will be popular destinations this winter. The TVB and Falkner are positive about the coming winter season: With the Giggijochbahn and the Rotkogelbahn, two of the most accessible cable cars in the world await, which allow guests to enjoy skiing without long queues. In addition, two new restaurants are opening next to the middle station of the Gaislachkoglbahn and offer a variety of culinary delights. Guests can also look forward to great prices: with smart ski pass rates, early birds can get up to 20% off their ski passes. Cable car boss Jakob Falkner is optimistic that with the safety precautions and plans in place this year, the Ötztal will once again be a popular holiday and excursion destination full of innovations and comfort for guests.

In addition to the Giggijochbahn, the Rotkoglbahn has now also been renewed and ensures short waiting times. ©Mountain railways Sölden/Christoph Nösig
