The sun passes over the summit at exactly noon, justifying its name to the guests sipping coffee at the summit’s cafe. Visit the viewing platform for a spectacular photo op that will save you money on a picture postcard. Aiguille du Midi reaches 3,842 m (12,605 ft) and hundreds of thousands of visitors stand in awe of its majestic beauty each year.

Rather an unpleasant sharp wind. The price of the lift is 65 euros, it is worth it. Lucky with the weather, there was no fog, managed to get without queues in the booth "step into the void" In general there were no queues for the lift. At 8 a.m. they calmly bought a ticket and got up. We stayed until 2 p.m. and didn't want to go down.
Absolutely stunning experience! Breathtaking views of the Alps including Mont Blanc from multiple panoramic terraces, a lot of information on top, nice museum, and 'step into the void' attraction included. Very pricey and extremely overcrowded in the peak season, but still worth it! Go there on a sunny day, but take warm clothes with you.
just do it. very expensive but it is worth it. dress warmly. (also in the summer) We loved it really recommended !
