007 ELEMENTS & ice Q (1:04)

Ötztal in Tirol has its own James Bond exhibition, titled 007 ELEMENTS, inspired by that film series’ shoot here in 2015. Gourmet restaurant ice Q had its moment in the spotlight, playing the role of the futuristic clinic where Bond (Daniel Craig) und Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) first meet. Joanna and Emily explored the unique interactive 1,300-square-metre installation, treating themselves to an apple strudel afterwards.
