Eiffel Tower, Paris

Planning to visit the Eiffel Tower? Check out our information below!


The Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly the most famous landmark in Paris. The impressive structure dates from 1887 and was built for the World’s Fair commissioned by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. The Eiffel Tower consists of 3 floors and until 2004, with a height of 324 metres, it was the tallest structure in all of France. The climb from the ground floor to the first floor and from the first floor to the second floor both contain 300 steps, so to climb to the second floor you have to climb 600 steps!  

All floors of the Eiffel Tower are open to visitors. On the First Floor, there is a complete glass floor, which you can walk across and from the top of the Eiffel Tower (Vertigo), you have a breathtaking view of the whole of Paris.

More than 6 million people visit the Eiffel Tower every year. The high number of visitors makes for hefty queues at the imposing structure. This is not surprising, considering that for many people it is the picture of Paris and the first thing on their to-do list.

Opening hours:

The Eiffel Tower is open every day of the year from: 09:30 AM to 10:45 PM.
