The Top

After a spectacular ascent in glass-walled lifts, you’re finally here. 276m up with only the antennae above you, Paris lies at your feet. The noise of the boulevards can’t reach you here, but the wind catches you and your heart begins to race.

Witness to thousands of promises of undying love, the Eiffel Tower stirs your emotions.

With two floors (one open-air and another indoor), you can take a stroll and enjoy the views by day or night.

At the champagne bar, enjoy an unforgettable flute of champagne or fruit drink.

Attractions at the top

Gustave Eiffel’s office

Historical reconstitution

At the top of the Tower explore Gustave Eiffel’s office which has been restored to its original condition.

With its very life like wax models, the scene depicts the Tower’s creator and his daughter Claire welcoming the famous American inventor, Thomas Edison. Among other things you can also see the gramophone which he presents to Gustave Eiffel as a gift.

  • Find yourself

    The panoramic maps

    Using the panoramic maps which can be found at various points at the top of the Tower, you can locate your position and get an idea of the directions and distances to major world cities!

    The silhouettes of the emblematic monuments of those cities are presented. For each monument the geographic location (country flag, name of the city) and the height of the building are mentioned.

    A thin reference line indicates the height of the Eiffel Tower, for an easy comparison.

    The 1889 summit

    The top floor also features a model of the top of the Tower from 1889, at a 1:50 scale. Painted in the Tower’s original “red-brown” colour, it’s a great way of seeing how the floor was originally planned.
