Great trip with amazing views. Would definitely recommend going just for the view. Not too much up there rather than just a great viewing platform but I would recommend this.

Lovely train journey with great views. Cable car ride to the Ice cave also offers great views of the area. Lots of steps still up and down to the ice cave but well worth it

The Montenvers train ride offers fantastic views of the Chamonix Valley, and is a adventure by itself. On the top you can visit the Glacier exhibition. It provides a education on the history of the glacier. From the top station you can also hike down...More

Worth the trip on the train - very scenic, or better still, after walking up from Chamonix itself. 2.5hrs effort rewarded with fantastic views of the Glacier and a very well deserved beer.

Pleasant train ride and a lovey ice cave. Worth while experience overall but the cafe and shop are staffed poorly who clearly don't want to service you. For a key tourist destination in Chamonix, this is just bad business. Guess Moody's is right about the...More

The glacier and the ice cave are definitely worth a visit at least in the winter! The ride uphill from Chamonix to Montvers with the little red train is a fun experience. The views are stunning from the terraces, and the telecabine + 400 stairs...More

It gives a great view on the mountain. However in summer nowadays there's almost no ice left. So the cost of taking the train is covered if in addition one goes to the ice cave or the glaciorum or makes a walk around.

The station for this is near to the centre of Chamonix and you are transported in comfort by train up to the viewing terrasse. The cafe at the top is disappointingly ordinary and the restaurant is a little walk away. The price is more reasonable...More
