Heart of Stone Locations

Heart of Stone casino
The filmmakers could have invented a fictional location for the awesome casino on top of a mountain, but this high altitude location was actually filmed in the Alpin Arena Senales, as the movie says. How boring!

This ski resort is situated on the Italian-Austrian border in the Senales Valley of the Italian Alps.

Heart of Stone hotel
The Senales Hotel is the Glacier Hotel Grawand, a top accommodation that claims to be Europe's highest hotel at 3,212 meters (about 10,500 feet).

In real life, instead of going to the casino, which was filmed somewhere else, you can take a sauna on the glacier.
