For the Holiday season, the Eiffel Tower welcomes ski resort including unique entertainments to test with your family. From December 22, 2018, to January 27, 2019, come and get amazed on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower looks like a ski resort in Paris for the winter from December 22, 2018 to January 27, 2019.

A 40-sqm-dome is coming on the Eiffel tower 1st floor with 2 highlights: during Christmas break 2018, we can test our winter sporting skills then, the entertainments are replaced by a relaxing area in a décor filled with pine trees, from January 7 to 27, 2019!

To immortalize our break on the Eiffel Tower, 4-seat telecabins and 2-seat ski lifts painted in blue-white-red are set up for uncommon pictures in Paris.

Eiffel Tower entertainments during Christmas break 2018:

Thanks to Xtreme machines VR™, we can try our hands at slaloming, ski jumping and hang-gliding through virtual reality. The experience is rather surprising: we put on a virtual reality helmet and we go to the dynamic platform that will respond to the position of our bodies. We can even feel the speed (thanks to a fan!). Fun, the experience is to try but remains accessible to kids only starting from 10 years old!

So, for kids, kid karting™ offers to face one another during virtual races. Seated in an inflatable kart, they have to be the fastest at the video game.

Eiffel Tower entertainments from January 7 to 27, 2019:

From January 7, 2019 winter sports are replaced by tables and chairs, creating a cocooning area in a background filled with trees.

All along the period, from December 22, 2018 to January 27, 2019:

This winter, the Eiffel Tower invites the Fabrique à Cookie for a gourmet break with 17 cookie recipes that are super delicious. Lemon-meringue, Apple Tatin, Dulce de Leche, Caramel d’Isigny with salt from Guérande, Rose Praline from Valence, Nougat from Montélimar to name a few! With these cookies, even the cold won’t make you regret the climb of this unmissable monument in Paris.
