History of the Eiffel Tower

The landmark of Paris, the famous Eiffel Tower, was constructed in 1889 by Gustave Eiffel due to the world exhibition. At that time the short construction phase was an unbelievable achievement in architecture and engineering and was seen as miracle.
At first it was planned to demolish the Tower 20 years after construction. Fortunately its function regarding radio and television broadcast became too important and led to the monument’s preservation. Until the Chrysler building in New York City was finished in 1930, the Eiffel Tower was considered as the highest building of the world. Since its opening more than 250 million people visited the Eiffel Tower and it still attracts more than 7 million visitors every year. This makes the Eiffel Tower one of the most visited buildings of the world. As soon as the sun sets, 20,000 bulbs change the Eiffel Tower into a shining artwork. 

Construction of the Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower consists of three floors which can be entered.
The first floor is located 57 meters above the ground and can be reached by lift or by foot. After a long phase of renovation the platform has a floor made of glass. By looking down you can observe everything that happens underneath the platform. Furthermore there are digital albums, screens and replication which illustrate information and the history of the Eiffel Tower in an interesting and funny way. There are also spaces to relax, shops and restaurants.
The second floor offers a great view over Paris and is also reachable by stairs. Souvenir shops, the restaurant of the starred chef Jules Verne as well as the amazing view create a visit to the Eiffel Tower you will never forget.
