Views are beautiful both up the mountain and from the cable car, the step into the void is a plus although the line can get long. Would recommend it 100%

Really cool mountain and glacier. Went on a super sunny summer day when there were almost 30 Celsius in town. The temperature on the mountain was about five Celsius. So don't forget to take a jacket because the wind is cold and there is snow...More

It was very exciting to see the Alps from 3800 m. Don't forget to go up to "into the void" It is a bit fearsome but worth to try ;)

We are purchasing the Swiss Travel Train pass, which also includes several attractions and museums throughout Switzerland. The train pass is also valid to enter France to Chamonix. Is there a discount for the Cable car Aiguille du Midi with the Swiss train pass?

Hi.. I'm planning to visit Aiguille du Midi next week. I will be coming with my 19 months old kid. Some of them suggested to check with a doctor before taking the kid to peak and our doctor said as long as there is no known health issues, it is ok to take the child to the top. Is there any restrictions to take the child to the top?
