We stayed for a short holiday in Lausanne. In our last weekend we considered going to Chamonix, allthough it was about 150km away from Lausanne. It was a bright sunny day, so many more people came to the idea to visit Chamonix. Parking was a...More

The Aiguille du Midi is a must visit in Chamonix...even if you are not going for skiing or climbing...the telepherique ascent is well worth it to get the wonderful view from the top.

This is a must do visit. The scenery is amazing - it's rare to be able to get so high without becoming a mountaineer. We visited with our two daughters who both loved it- it's totally safe for kids. It's super popular - we had...More
