Sphinx Panoramic Terrace : Michelin's recommendations
Reached by the fastest elevator in Switzerland (108 m in 25 seconds), this viewpoint at 3,571 m altitude, offers a spectacular view of the immense Aletsch glacier that sits between the peaks. With very fresh air and being easy to reach, the Sphinx still houses a research laboratory and astronomic observatory.
