  • On a good day, this *might* be worth the money (€108 for a family of 3 without entry to planetarium), but the problem is the unpredictable weather. We live in the south of France and were told it's...  more »
  • The cable car journey, or 2 cable cars to be precise, to the Pic de Midi offer great views over the mountains. Once on the Peak you can opt for a guided tour with your own sanitized headset and...  more »
  • We saw this crazy place on Tour de France footage, and so made the effort to get there. We absolutely loved it. Everything we were hoping it would be!  more »

  • I will never forget what happened in those days. We were the last ones to buy tickets, one minute before close the ticket office. We went down with my princess from Pic du Midi and then we reached two peaks. On the second day, on the way back, we met a nice elderly gentleman with three young girls. As it turned out, he was the curator of these areas. He said he saw our exploits while walking down the pedestrian trail. He said we were "amazing" but also crazy. The photos we showed you won't get to see these views from the observation deck. From those days, for the next week we were only in the Pyrenees. Although our tourist base was by the ocean. From La Mongie you can start your fabulous. Pic du Midi is wonderful.
  • Breathtaking scenery. Whether you are a mountain person or a beach person, you are definitely going to be amazed by the views the observatory offers. Ticket prices might seem a bit too high, but the entire experience is totally worth it. Make sure the weather's nice and warm when you visit!
  • Made the journey, but the weather was against us, but what we did see was brilliant.
  • My friends had a terrible experience. Their family spent 900€ and didn’t get the refund even though they paid for the insurance and had a medical certificate. Pic du Midi sold my friends the insurance and now they wont give them their contact information. They even stopped replying. They stole my friends 900 euros and refuse to give it back!! The company seems to be extremely unreliable and I will definitely be letting all of my friends and family know to NOT visit this place.
