A spectacular cable-car ride:

All starts with the cable-car ride, 15 minutes of climbing. Little by little the horizon widens, more and more dramatic peaks appear, the higher you climb the more breathtaking it becomes. The greatest fairground ride ever!

A voyage back in time:

During your visit to the museum be sure to watch the film which tells the story of the brave pioneers who created the Pic, a magnificent tale of human endeavour. Exclusive footage, witness accounts and above all passion...

Did you know?

VIP indeed! Normally the scientific part of the Observatory is inaccessible to the public, only those who spend a night at the summit are allowed access to this parallel universe which exists alongside the public areas, a real VIP treatment...
