Thursday 9 july 2020

Only three weeks after the reopening of the Eiffel Tower, visitors will be able to access the monument’s summit starting on July 15, 2020

 

Paris at your feet...
Who has never dreamed of seeing Paris spread out 900 feet below them?  The Eiffel Tower summit will reopen on 15 July, and make this dream a reality once again.

For the moment, elevator capacities between the 2nd and 3rd floors have been reduced by half. he summit platform can accommodate 250 people at a time with appropriate social distancing.
At the same time, elevator capacity between the ground level and the 2nd floor will increase. These elevators will now carry 20 visitors (instead of 8 last week). 

Wearing a mask is still mandatory in all public spaces, on the platforms and in elevators, and social distancing measures must be respected. 

 

Ticketing and visitors
Time-stamped elevator and staircase tickets are available online, and tickets without a reservation can be bought on site. 

Since its reopening, close to 5,000 people per day have visited the Eiffel Tower on weekdays, and 8,000 on weekends. And in fact, the lack of waiting lines at the entrance has made visiting the Tower even more comfortable. The majority of visitors have been French, 75%, and families. We remind you that until August 31, 2020, SETE is offering a special discount for children between the ages of 4 and 11:  50% off the ticket price.
