Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix

4.7
#1 of 53 in Sightseeing in Haute-Savoie
Mountain Lookout
Aiguille du Midi, translated as “Needle of the Noon,” pokes the sky with the point of its peak. 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.
