Eiffel Tower, Paris

The Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Paris and one of the most famous landmarks in the world.

The Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Paris and one of the most famous landmarks in the world. A tour of the Eiffel Tower is definitely the highlight of any trip to the city.

Built by Gustave Eiffel in 1887-1889 as the entrance to the World's Fair, the iconic tower made of 7,300 tonnes of wrought iron was almost torn down in 1909 and only saved due to its use as a telegraphy antenna. Now a major attraction, it draws tourists from all over the world today.

The tower is painted in 3 shades of bronze which get progressively darker towards the bottom to complement the sky. The only non-structural elements are the 4 decorative grill-work arches which lend a monumental look to the tower. An engineering marvel, the Eiffel Tower is engraved with the names of 72 French scientists, engineers and mathematicians who lived between 1789 and 1889. A bust of Gustave Eiffel by sculptor Antoine Bourdelle is placed at the foot of the Eiffel Tower at the corner of the North pillar. The 324 metre tall tower has viewing platforms on 3 levels, which can be reached via the glass elevator.

  • The first level at 57 metres above ground has a transparent floor and offers a unique view of the surroundings. You can take the elevator, or climb 300 steps to reach here. The circular gallery that goes around the floor offers 360° views of Paris, with orientation tables and telescopes for better focus. There are several displays, touch screens, and replicas that delve into the history and architecture of the Eiffel Tower. Catch the immersion show at the Ferrie Pavilion, pick up a few souvenirs from the shop, and enjoy a fine-dining experience at 58 Tour Eiffel. You can also see vestiges of the spiral staircase which led to the top.
  • The second level at a height of 115 metres has viewing balconies which offer the best perspective of Paris. It also has a souvenir shop, the Michelin starred Le Jules Verne restaurant, and slides on the construction of the tower.
  • The third level at a height of 276 metres is the highest public observation deck in the European Union. It offers extraordinary panoramic views over Paris as well as panoramic maps to get an idea of your geographic location on the globe in relation to major cities. Here you can also see Gustave Eiffel’s supposed office which has been restored to its original condition. It has life size wax models of Eiffel and his daughter Claire welcoming Thomas Edison. The gramophone gifted by the latter is also on display. The space was also used by the meteorological laboratory, and later by Gustave Ferrié for his wireless TSF experiments. A 1:50 scale model of the top floor as it was in 1889 is also on display. You can relax on this level with a champagne at the bar.

Queues at the entrance to the Eiffel Tower can be extremely long, so it is advisable to book skip-the-line tickets in advance to save time.
