The only trip to the top of its kind in Europe, one where emotions carry you away. From the esplanade to the summit you will experience a whole series of emotions. Soak in the breathtakingly unique views of Paris from every floor, feel the goose bumps as you walk the glass floor on the 1st floor, experience the incredible ascent by stairway or lift, the indescribable awe at the tonnes of iron above you as you stand on the esplanade, the vertigo as you look down…
The transparent floor
Don’t look down!
With its transparent floor and its new glass balustrades, the 1st floor offers you a brand-new experience and a breath-taking view.
Walk on the glass floor, 57m from the ground, and experience the unique sensation of stepping out into the void.
But you need have no fears: a non-slip treatment has been applied, with a transparency effect that increases gradually from the interior towards the central space and covering 1.85m at its largest.
Children tour “Follow Gus”
Enjoy exploring the Tower
The little Gus character, dressed in the style of Gustave Eiffel, accompanies children on a fun and educational experience dedicated to children aged 6 to 10.
Equipped with a bilingual French-English booklet-game and a little pencil provided for them, young visitors learn a thousand aspects of the history of the Eiffel Tower, about its creator but also about the landscape of Paris seen from that level.
Signs bearing the Gus character guide children through each stage of the tour.
An immersion show
Projected onto 3 walls by 7 projectors, this immersion show will plunge you into the Eiffel Tower universe.
A new cultural path
Screens, touch screens, displays, digital albums, reproductions of items, etc. allow you to find out about all aspects of the Eiffel Tower, many little known.
Spiral staircase section
Did you know that originally it was a spiral staircase which linked the second floor to the top? Gustave Eiffel would use it to reach the office that he‘d set up for himself! As it had become obsolete, the staircase was taken down in 1983.
Twenty sections were subsequently sold at auction for a very good price.
On the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, you can take a closer look at one of the remaining pieces of this historic staircase. It measures 4.30 meters in height.
