Experience the magic of winter on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower

Tuesday 5 december 2017

This year, the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower will feature a designer take on the fairy tale feel, with a special interior decor from 15 December 2017 to 18 February 2018. The enchanted terrace will evoke a sense of wonder, playing with the reflections from the mirrors that make up its installations.

A chill-out area in a monumental interior, straight from the frozen north

Make no mistake: winter has arrived at the Eiffel Tower, and it’s looking good!

Transformed into an ice flow, the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower will be home to a family of giant penguins (3m tall) made entirely from facet mirrors.

These giant animals will take up residence amongst giant quartz crystals and a 5m tall replica of the Eiffel Tower adorned in silver mirrors, all within a forest of white birch and pitch black firs.

In a chic, eye-catching atmosphere, visitors to the Eiffel Tower can have their photo taken in this magical setting, and sample wintry treats from the iceberg bar.

Remember that for kids, Santa Claus will be in residence from 19-22 December.

Cacao Corner 57m up

To make this chilled experience cosier, a wide range of hot drinks will be on sale at Cacao Corner, the frozen bar on the terrace.

What could be better than sharing a decadently indulgent hot chocolate 57m up from the ground? (Waffles, cold drinks, and other hot drinks are also available from €3.50)
