Local name: Tour Eiffel

The Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Paris and one of the most famous buildings in the world. The steel structure of 312 meters was erected in 1889 for the World Exhibition. It is currently the most popular tourist attraction in Paris. There are three observation terraces from which you can admire the city panorama.

The building was to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution and be a showcase of the technical thought genius of the late 19th century. Initially, it was designed as a temporary structure. It was planned to undress her after the exhibition. However, it turned out that it attracted so many viewers that it was decided to stand it. Over the following years, the tower height changed due to the placement of masts and antennas on its top. Currently it has 324 meters.

The tower is available to tourists throughout the year, both during the day and in the evenings. Is the most famous vantage point of Paris. The two lower viewing terraces are accessible by stairs, the highest, located just below the top, only by a fast elevator. In the evening the tower is illuminated.
