The 2023 summer terrace on the first floor is an essential stop for enjoying the fine weather.

As every year, the Eiffel Tower welcomes you to its summer rooftop terrace for a gourmet and refreshing break at a height of 187 feet. This year, the themed terrace pays tribute to Gustave Eiffel on the occasion on the 100th anniversary of his death and is a pleasant space where visitors can learn a little about the incredible life of the man who built the Eiffel Tower.

A dream rooftop terrace

The first-floor terrace is the perfect place for visitors to stop on their way back down, welcoming you in a pleasant setting of blue and gold with attractive furnishings for relaxing and enjoying the moment with family or friends, including seats and chairs, rugs, and tables. In the center, the large, chic bar serves drinks, snacks and cocktails throughout the day. You can also grab a bite on the go from the stands next to the terrace selling pizza, slushies, handmade ice cream, and more. There’s everything you need for an unforgettable moment and to enjoy the view of Paris one last time, whether by day or by night!
