Lovely to spend a few hours if you can't ski... Spectacular views of the Mont Blanc, but dress well, it gets very cold up there.

This is an experience not to be missed! Just going up is an experience in itself, especially the second part as its quite steep!! The views from the top are breathtaking as you can see for miles around. It is so beautiful. Things to consider: It's quite windy up there, especially on the bridge and it's cold too. I think...

Although pricey for a non skier (it is free if you are a skier and have the unlimited pass) it is soooooooooooooo worth it. The glass cube was a total surprise and just amazing!

Absolutely breathtaking. Pictures don't do justice to the beauty here. Be prepared for it to be quite windy in areas so dress in layers even during warm weather. Definitely get photos in the glass box. It can be scary if you don't like heights but conquer your fear and go for it.

Went early in the morning. Saw skiers climbing down to the glacier. Breathtaking panoramas. Spent a couple hours but could have stayed longer.

The view from the top is indeed fantastic, and the facilities good, if expensive. However €55 for a gondola ride is excessive; particularly as they are infrequent and overcrowded; and the windows are so scratched from skis etc the view on the way up / down through almost frosted glass is spoiled. Just as good would be a ride up... More

we went up the Aiguile du midi in September, although it was expensive and busy it was worth it, the views are spectacular, not good for anyone frightened of heights !!

Wow, if Carlsberg created mountain scenery. Lots of surprises and jaw dropping moments up there, including the new glass bottom experience which is included in the price. We watched real mountaineers at work on the mountain too. 2 minute walk to cable car from Chamonix centre and everybody gave great service including and were happy to take our photos .

This is a must do if you're in the area. I was at a conference in Geneva and rented a car to spend the weekend here. First, Chamonix is a fairy tale town. Beautiful buildings, pedestrian only streets, lovely town. All in the shadows of the mountains. My neck hurt from looking up so much. But the trip to the... More

I would recommend anyone to go up to Aiguille du Midi. So worth the money. The view is beautiful and you can easily spend 2 hours there. Even if it was so scary I am so proud that I had the guts to walk out on the steps into the void.
