Visit the backstage of this amazing monument, guided by our tour guide who will provide you all the related details. You can access the old bunker hidden under the Champ-de-Mars. As a part of the real privilege to be at such a place, you will slide into the startling and imposing engine area where the initially installed machine is still supporting the work of the elevators. Climbing up to the 2-nd floor you will be surprised by the amazing and unexpected view on the city – unprecedented 360 panorama from the prestigious Jules Verne Restaurant.
In 1889 on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition, the Official Gazette announced a contest for erection of a tour on the Champ-de-Mars. The tower had to be metal, of a square base, 125 m wide and 300m high. Among the 107 presented plans the Gustave Eiffel project won the tender. After 2 years, 2 months and 5 days the new construction was exposed to the public. Visitors were able to ascend the monument by elevators – a substantial technical achievement for those days. Even today this exceptional monument is a testimony of the visionary genie Gustave Eiffel.
