8 tips for visiting the Eiffel Tower

View of the Eiffel Tower | Photo: Unsplash, Timelab
1
Don't feel like standing in line? Book your ticket online here at TicketLens!During peak season, the waiting times at the ticket counters can be up to two hours. Tickets purchased in advance are provided with a time slot during which the ticket can be redeemed. This way, you save yourself from standing in line! Regardless of the season, the Eiffel Tower is a perennial favorite, meaning tickets sell out very fast. Book your ticket at least two to three weeks in advance!

ATTENTION: Often, online tickets for a specific day are no longer available directly on the Eiffel Tower's website. That's exactly why TicketLens exists! Check out our website and find available capacities through our ticket providers! This way, you can still get your preferred ticket for your desired date!

2
Consider security checks - be on timeBefore you can climb the Eiffel Tower, security checks are performed. To be able to adhere to your timeslot, you should be on site about 15 to 20 minutes earlier.
3
Pay attention to the flagsThe area at the blue flag on the South pillar of the Eiffel Tower is reserved for visitors who take the stairs to the second level or the stairs and the lift to the top. The blue flag shows you where the ticket office is, if you did not buy your ticket in advance. The area at the East and West pillar with the green flag is intended for visitors who already have a ticket and want to take the lift to the top of the Eiffel Tower. From here, you have direct access to the entrance of the Eiffel Tower.
4
Reserve a table in one of the restaurants - no more queues!If you want to avoid the queues and dine comfortably or finely on one of the floors, then reserve a table in one of the restaurants and spare yourself the wait. This way, you gain access to the separate entrance that takes you to your desired floor. Further down on our website, you can find more information about the restaurants at the Eiffel Tower!

5
Take your time at the Eiffel TowerIf you want to enjoy the Eiffel Tower in peace, you should plan at least an hour and a half to visit the top. If you want to climb all the floors of the tower, you will need about two and a half hours. This already takes into account the waiting times at the elevators and the time you will need to explore the building! Continue reading - you will find the most important information about the individual floors in the next section here on our website.

6
Use the staircaseSince the queue for the elevators can be especially long, you can also use the stairs that lead up to the second floor. While climbing a total of 745 steps, you can admire the construction of the Eiffel Tower from up close. It takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to ascend each floor.
7
Visit all floors - not every ticket takes you everywhere!It is best to book the ticket that allows you access to all floors and especially to the top. At the top, Gustave Eiffel, his daughter, and Thomas Edison await you - of course, they are only wax figures standing in the accurately reconstructed room, but they are still worth a visit! You should also visit the other floors, each offering its own view. For visitors who are not afraid of heights: there is a glass base on the 1st floor, from which you can look through at a hight of 58m (190.29 ft)!
8
Use the online guideAt the Eiffel Tower it is possible for you to connect with the Online Guide on your smartphone to receive additional historical information during your visit. On-site, you can connect to the free WLAN access _WiFi_Tour_Eiffel. The online guide is available in French, English, Spanish, and Chinese. Also, at the ticket counter and the elevators, brochures with basic information are available in French, English, Spanish, and German.

The offers of the floors

Once, visitors of the Eiffel Tower could use the stairs to reach the top. Today, the staircase only goes up to the second floor, from where an elevator takes you to the top. Then as now, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city of love and wonderful food and drinks at the Eiffel Tower.

Taking the elevator to the top

Already in the time of the opening of the Eiffel Tower, visitors could use elevators - what is commonplace today, was something special back then. Meanwhile, only two of the original elevators are still in operation and transport guests to the top. Due to the different ascent options, both by foot and by elevator, tickets are offered at different prices. The ascent from the second floor to the top is only possible by elevator!

Climbing the Eiffel Tower on foot

Back then, 1,585 steps led to the top and a total of 1,710 steps beyond the top via a spiral staircase! Today, the spiral staircase in its original form no longer exists; it was cut into 24 pieces. Some of these parts were auctioned off, with one piece even fetching a record 275,000 euros in 2020. On the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, remnants of the former spiral staircase can still be admired. Today, 364 steps lead to the first floor and an additional 381 steps to the second floor. The second floor of the Eiffel Tower was recently a destination for athlete Anouk Garnier in the spring of 2024. She broke the world record for rope climbing on the Eiffel Tower. She is an obstacle course athlete who managed to climb 110m (360.89 ft) up a rope to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. The previous world record for climbing a rope suspended vertically was 90m (295.28 ft), while for women it was only 26m (85.3 ft). Garnier took only 18 minutes to climb the famous landmark.

Culinary delights at an altitude

On the 1st and 2nd floor, there are small food stands offering snacks such as pizza, paninis, and hotdogs for a quick bite in addition to warm beverages like tea and coffee. If you desire a more exclusive ambiance, you can find the Michelin-star awarded restaurant Jules Verne on the second floor, where creative French cuisine is served with a view of the Champ-de-Mars. The restaurant on the first floor, called Madame Brasserie has also been attracting guests since 2022 with contemporary cuisine made from local and seasonal products. Please note that you must reserve a table in these restaurants in advance.

Sparkling champagne finale

The summit awaits you with the Champagne Bar. This original bar offers not only a fascinating view of Paris but also caviar and homemade lemonades. A glass of the world-famous French champagne is certainly a crowning finale during the visit of the iconic Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower shines brightly

Since 1985, 20,000 lamps connected by 40km (131,23 ft) of power cables have made the Eiffel Tower shine in all its glory. After dark, the Eiffel Tower sparkles every full hour for five minutes. The last light show takes place at 11:00 pm. Due to energy-saving measures, the lighting is now turned off at 11:45 pm - earlier than in previous decades.

High visitor traffic

The Eiffel Tower is as impressive as it is popular - millions of tourists visit this attraction every year. The tower is thus one of the most visited landmarks in the world. Depending on the temperatures, however, the rush of visitors varies. In contrast to the winter months, the number of visitors in the summer is very high. The time between 9 am and 11 am is usually less crowded, as well as the evening between 8:00 pm and 10:30 pm. Possible waiting times can be followed live on the official website of the Eiffel Tower.

The green side of the Eiffel Tower

The magnificent gardens around the Eiffel Tower in the middle of the city invite visitors to relax and enjoy the view of the Eiffel Tower from below. They cover an area of 130,000m² (1,399,308.35 sq ft) and are divided into different areas, including the Champ-de-Mars, the Jardins du Trocadéro or the Esplanade des Invalides. Visitors can stroll through manicured lawns, blooming flower beds, walking paths, and fountains.

The history of the Eiffel Tower

Originally, the Eiffel Tower was envisaged as the central attraction for the 'Exposition Universelle' in 1889. Over the decades, it has become increasingly popular. It has become increasingly popular over the decades and is closely associated with the French capital for Parisians, but also worldwide.

Chasing the record

At the time the tower was conceived, the tallest building in the world was the Washington Monument at 169m (554.46 ft). In Paris, they were looking for a central object for the 1889 World's Fair, which was to be held on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. In a competition, designs for a tower were sought that would be at least 300m (984.25 ft) high, have four sides, and be made of metal. Gustave Eiffel's concept (which was actually conceived by his employees Maurice Koechlin and Émile Nouguier) was considered practically feasible and was ultimately selected.

The Height of the Eiffel Tower

Since its opening, the actual structural height of the Eiffel Tower is 300.51m (985.93 ft). With the lantern and the flagpole, the tower reaches a total height of 312.27m (1024.51 ft) at its summit. There, over 120 antennas for the transmission of dozens of radio and television programs (used as a broadcasting tower) are located. The height of the antennas varied over the decades. The last change in the overall height occurred in March 2022: A new radio antenna has now increased the Eiffel Tower by another 6m (19.69 ft) to 330m (1082.68 ft).

A Later Crowd Favorite

Although initially rather unpopular among the population, the Eiffel Tower was built between January 1887 and March 1889 and made accessible to the public on May 6, 1889. Celebrities of the time, like Thomas Edison, Buffalo Bill and the Prince of Wales were among the first visitors to the building. The Eiffel Tower was originally intended to stand only until 1909, but by that time it was already being used for telecommunications and tourism. For 41 years, the tower remained the tallest man-made structure in the world, until it was surpassed by the Chrysler Building in 1930.

The Eiffel Tower - A Symbol of Tourism and Culture

In the world of architecture, there are few structures as iconic and universally recognized as the Eiffel Tower. As a landmark of Paris and one of the most famous symbols of France, the Eiffel Tower embodies not just the beauty of the City of Lights, but also a rich cultural history that attracts millions of people from around the world every year.

The source of inspiration

The Eiffel Tower was not only erected as a triumphant entry gate to the 1889 World's Fair but also as a manifestation of the technological progress and engineering skill of its time. When Gustave Eiffel brought his vision of the Eiffel Tower to life, he not only created an impressive steel and iron structure but also a source of inspiration for generations of architects and engineers.
However, the Eiffel Tower is more than just a technical masterpiece - it is a magnet for tourism and a focal point for cultural activities. Year after year, millions of visitors from all over the world flock to the foot of the tower to enjoy the breathtaking views from the observation decks, explore the rich history of the tower, and experience the romantic flair of Paris.

The symbolism of the Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower has a profound impact on the cultural identity of France and serves as a symbol of love, art, and freedom that the city of Paris embodies. From its role in countless films, books, and paintings to its use as a stage for spectacular light shows and fireworks - the Eiffel Tower is more than just a structure. It is a symbol of the vibrancy and diversity of French culture.

The Difficulties

While the Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly a touristical highlight in Paris, it also poses a challenge. Managing the daily influx of masses of visitors requires careful planning and good management to enhance the experience for everyone while preserving the structure and historical value of the tower.

Conclusion

In an era where the travel industry is rapidly evolving and the world is increasingly interconnected, the Eiffel Tower remains a timeless symbol of the significance of tourism and culture in the global context. The Eiffel Tower will continue to be a source of fascination and inspiration for travelers from all over the world, reminding us that true beauty lies not only in the structures we build but also in the stories and memories we share.

Quick facts about the Eiffel Tower

If you want to impress your fellow travelers with knowledge about this attraction during your visit of the Eiffel Tower, then it's best to read our collection of facts here. You will definitely impress them.

Temporary Structure

Originally, the Eiffel Tower was planned as a temporary structure that was to be dismantled after the World Fair of 1889. To keep the attraction, a radio antenna was erected on the Eiffel Tower. The plan worked, as the city's representatives recognized its use as a radio tower and decided not to demolish the Eiffel Tower.

Critical Artists and Parisians

Today, the Eiffel Tower is considered a landmark of Paris. Previously, the iron lady was unfortunately not very popular. Intellectuals like Emile Zola referred to the Eiffel Tower as big perforated giraffe. The writer Guy de Maupassant even went so far as to dine daily on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower to avoid having to look at it.

The French wanted the tallest building

The tender for the building for the World Fair of 1889 demanded that the tower be at least 300m (984.25 ft) high. At the time, the Washington Monument at 169m (554,46 ft) was the tallest building, which was to be far surpassed.

Changing Heights

The Eiffel Tower was 300.51m (985.93 ft) high at its opening. Including the lantern and flagpole, it even reached a height of 312.27m (1024.51 ft). Over the years, additional antennas were added; thus, the tower varied in height again and again. An even longer antenna was last installed in March 2022 - the height of the Eiffel Tower today is therefore exactly 330m (1082.68 ft).

Growth in Heat

Due to the expansion of the metal in heat, the Eiffel Tower can grow up to 15cm (0.49 ft or 5.9 in) in height on a warm day.

Wind Resistance

The Eiffel Tower is constructed to withstand strong winds. Thanks to its flexible structure, it can even bend up to 12cm (0,065 ft or 4.72 in) when it blows hard.

Color Changes and Manual Labor in Painting

The Eiffel Tower has been repainted several times since its construction. It was originally red-brown, then yellow and red, before finally receiving its characteristic bronze color that it wears today. If you look closely, you can see that it is a bit darker on top than at the bottom. The Eiffel Tower is mostly painted by hand. It is repainted every seven years by 50 painters. On average, about 60 tons of paint are applied to the structure. In 2024, the Eiffel Tower received a golden coat of paint - as a symbol for the Olympic Games that year in Paris.

Hidden Apartment

Gustave Eiffel had a private apartment in the Eiffel Tower, which he used for guests and himself. This apartment is no longer accessible to the public today, but a reproduction of its furnishings can still be seen in the tower.

Role as a Research Laboratory

In the early years, the Eiffel Tower served as a laboratory for various scientific experiments, particularly for the exploration of radio technology.

The Eiffel Tower as Advertising Space

From July 4, 1925, Citroen used the Eiffel Tower as advertising space. The advertisement could still be seen from 40km (24,85 miles) away. At that time, 250,000 light bulbs formed the “Citroen” lettering. After 1934, the tower never served as advertising space again. An interesting fact is that the American pilot Charles Augustus Lindbergh Junior used the illuminated Eiffel Tower as a guide during the first solo non-stop transatlantic flight from New York to Paris.

72 Names

Gustave Eiffel had the names of 72 famous personalities engraved into the border of the tower's first floor. But how did he choose them, and why did he place them there?

The first floor of the tower is surrounded by a large continuous beam, which is interrupted by brackets carrying the balcony. In the spaces thus created, Gustave Eiffel had the names of scholars inscribed in golden, 60cm (1.97 ft) high uppercase letters under the patronage of science and progress as part of the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.

However, these names were covered over the decades and were only made visible again during restoration measures. The names belong to scholars, scientists, and mathematicians who contributed to the successful construction of the tower and who were active as researchers.

Mail from the Eiffel Tower

On the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower, on the southern side, there is a post office. If you send postcards or letters from here, they will be stamped with the unique “Tour Eiffel Paris” stamp.

No photos of the Eiffel Tower at night allowed

After nightfall, a light show takes place every hour. It is officially forbidden to post photos or videos of the Eiffel Tower at night. The light show of the 20,000 LEDs is actually a work of art and protected by copyright. Therefore, taking and sharing photos is only okay if it is for personal memories, but they must not be used for commercial purposes under any circumstances.

Will you marry me?

In the Jules Verne restaurant, an average of two marriage proposals are made every day. A marriage proposal might feel very special to you, but considering that about 700 couples get engaged at the Eiffel Tower every year, a proposal at the Eiffel Tower is somewhat basic.

View

From the very top you have a view of up to 80km (49,7 miles) in good weather conditions. This allows you to even see the outskirts of Paris, the landscape beyond the suburbs, the Charles de Gaulle Airport, or clearly the Parc des Princes (Paris Saint-Germain stadium) (Parc des Princes), the sporting home of Paris Saint-Germain football club.

Extreme Sports

Since its construction, the Eiffel Tower has fascinated extreme sports enthusiasts. Franz Reichelt, for example, jumped off the Eiffel Tower in 1912 with a homemade parachute. Unfortunately, he did not survive the jump. In 1991, a pilot, who remains unknown to this day, flew a stolen airplane through the Eiffel Tower and then returned the plane to another airfield. Climbers regularly scale the Eiffel Tower with their bare hands. Of course, Red Bull has also organised a sports event at the Eiffel Tower. Taïg Khris jumped from the first floor on inline skates and thereby secured a record in the Guinness Book of Records.
