Elevators: here we go again!

Wednesday 1 july 2020

One week after the Eiffel Tower’s reopening, the West elevator renewed its operation today, carrying visitors up to the 2nd floor.


For this first week of reopening, after (re)discovering the Tower by climbing the stairs, visitors can now travel up to the 2nd floor on the West Pillar elevator, in compliance with health-safety guidelines. 
This means that in addition to sanitary measures and the mandatory wearing of masks, a very limited number of visitors are allowed in the cabins at one time. Normally, these elevators accommodate 45-50 people. For now, only 16 visitors (8 per cabin), will be able to use the elevator at a time. Capacities will gradually increase, particularly in the perspective of school holidays this summer.

Also, opening hours have been extended compared to the first week: the Tower is now open until 11:45 pm (instead of 9 pm). Please note that elevator tickets can only be purchased online. Stair tickets, however, are available both on site and online. 

So all the conditions are in place to guarantee you optimal visiting comfort!
