Observatory and Museum on Mountain Peak - by cable car

Find at the summit (2877 m) the most beautiful panorama of the Pyrenees, a museum on the astronomy and the history of the Pic du Midi, a traditional high altitude restaurant. Mountain bike downhill, (not for amateurs or children).

It is also possible to book Starry Night dinners which include cable car, dinner and a view of the sunsetting over the Pyrenees with talks on the current night sky, (torches and binoculars provided). See more stars than perhaps you've ever seen before. A special way to celebrate a special occassion - book through website.

The Pic du Midi has been listed as

a natural national site since 2003 due to the splendour of its landscapes. It is also a working observatory which specialises in studies of the sun.
