La Tour Eiffel

Built in 1889 for the World Exhibition, the Eiffel Tower is far more than a monument. It is one of the most well-known works of art in the world, the symbol of Paris and France. Each year, it welcomes over 6 million visitors.

Exploring the Eiffel Tower means awakening all your senses: feel the vertigo as you climb up in the lift or via the stairs, and enjoy the incredible view over the City of Lights at a dizzying height, once you arrive at the top…

The Eiffel Tower reflects our country’s image of excellence, which is especially found at its restaurants and bars. In addition to the legendary Jules Verne restaurant run by Chef Frédéric Anton, there is Madame Brasserie on the Tower’s first floor. Here, you can find fine bistro cuisine showcasing local, seasonal products, supplied by regional producers, some of whom are members of the “Eiffel Tower Artisans Guild”. Chef Thierry Marx is at the helm of this unbeatable Parisian spot, where you can enjoy brunch every Sunday in a cozy atmosphere.

Visitors can also enjoy two exclusive Pierre Hermé macarons, created especially for the Tower, or stroll through the official boutiques and treat yourself or someone else to exclusive, made-in-France products from the Eiffel Tower collection.

And on the events side of things, the Gustave Eiffel Room is available for hire by professionals, an amazing setting located at 187 feet with incredible views over the City of Lights.

Last of all, those who want to enjoy a special, exclusive tour of the monument can opt for The Grand Tour. Visitors in small groups (up to six adults) accompanied by an official Eiffel Tower guide will hear about the great highlights in the Tower’s history, how it works, its architecture, and more… Enjoy an unforgettable experience and discover (nearly) all the secrets of the Iron Lady.

The Eiffel Tower became an associate member of Comité Colbert in 2024.

Its signature

“But there can be no doubt: it will always be something, and something of humanity itself. Glance, object, symbol, such is the infinite circuit of functions which permits it always to be something other and something much more than the Eiffel Tower…”
