Located on the Place Charles-de-Gaulle, the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile is part of the landmarks of Paris and simply belongs to a visit to the metropolis. Directly below the monument, which was completed in 1836, is the grave of the unknown soldier. In the fall of 2021, the Arc de Triomphe is to be covered according to the plans of Christo. The observation platform on the Arc de Triomphe requires tickets, which are best purchased online in advance.

4 Tips for Visiting the Arc de Triomphe

Be ready to climb stairsThe observation deck of the Arc de Triomphe is located at a height of 164 feet (50 meters). There are a total of 284 steps to climb to the top. As an alternative, there is only one elevator to the middle floor, from which there are only 64 more steps to the observation deck.

Visit the Arc de Triomphe in the eveningAt 6:30 p.m., the flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier has been ceremonially lit since 1921 and the Champs-Elysées shine in the light of the falling night. This makes a visit to the Arc de Triomphe a very special experience - but also makes for quite a crowd. If you'd rather have it quieter, a morning detour might be more appropriate.
Use the underpassSince the dangerous traffic circle of the Champs-Elysées would be almost impossible to cross safely otherwise, there is an underpass that takes guests below the square directly to the Arc de Triomphe.
Book in advanceThe lines at the Arc de Triomphe can get very long, which is why buying skip-the-line tickets is worth it in any case.

Arc de Triomphe de L’Etoile: A Monument Full of History

The monument at the western end of the Champs-Elysées was built under Napoleon from 1806 and is one of the most important sights of Paris.


Napoleon I did not live to see the completion of the mighty structure, but in 1840 his mortal remains were carried in procession under the triumphal arch, completed in 1836. The monument is inspired by ancient Roman monumental buildings, the inscriptions commemorate battles, great military leaders and fallen soldiers.

Christo Wrapping

One of the highlights of Paris 2021: the Arc de Triomphe will be covered.

The French-Bulgarian artist Christo had wanted to wrap the Arc de Triomphe since the early 1960s. In 2020, the spectacular project was finally to be realized, but had to be postponed due to a pandemic. Christo died in May 2020. Posthumously and as the artist's last gift to his city of Paris, the Arc de Triomphe will now be covered for 2 weeks starting in mid-September 2021.
