In a walking-distance of about 10 minutes through the tunnels of Jungfraujoch-station you will get to this interesting place : The Sphinx Observatory is located on top of a small, seperate mountain on Jungfraujoch and a lift will take up finnaly up to the Sphinx-platform. The main-part of the Sphinx is used by scientists only, but tourists may get outside of the building, at a terrace that faces all sides of the building and it is made by a steel-grate, so the snow will fall down and walking there will be rather safe thoughout the year. Plenty of birds will be waiting to be fed there and inside the Sphinx you will find a small cocktail-lounge and even a shop for precious Swiss watches.
