Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 for the Universal Exhibition in Paris and was named after its designer, Gustave Eiffel.

Constructed in just over two years, it stands 300 meters tall and was not immediately appreciated to the extent that its demolition was considered at the end of the exhibition. However, today it is one of the most visited attractions in the world with approximately 7 million visitors per year.

Opening Hours and Days

The Tower is open every day of the year from 9:30 am to 10:45 pm, but to avoid queues, we recommend purchasing tickets online and choosing a weekday over weekends and holidays.

How to Get There

The Eiffel Tower is located in the center of Paris and can be easily reached by public transportation. The most economical and fastest way is to get off at the Bir-Hakeim metro station, which is only a 5-minute walk away. Alternatively, you can take bus 42, which will bring you within a 10-minute walk from the Tower.

Tips for Visiting the Eiffel Tower

If you are young or athletic, we recommend using the stairs to save waiting time for the elevator and enjoy the view along the way. This way, you can also admire the work of the engineers who designed the tower.

Before booking your visit to the Tower, check the weather forecast: admiring the panorama on a sunny day is definitely better than a cloudy one. If you stay in Paris for a few days, consider visiting the Tower twice to see the city both in daylight and with the city lights at night.

To make the most of your visit to the Tower, it's best to bring only a few personal belongings as there are no lockers available, and among the large crowd of tourists, there may be pickpockets.
