The Beautiful Sphinx Observatory in the Swiss Alps

It might only be the 14th highest observatory in the world, but the Sphinx observatory in Switzerland is possibly the most beautiful and unique. Located at Jungfraujoch on a treacherous peak at 11715 feet (3,571 meters), the classic structure is reached via the worlds highest railway, followed by a tunnel and then an elevator… it’s very remote, but still accessible year round thanks to the hard work of past adventurers.
