In Paris, the Eiffel Tower reopened on June 25, 2020 after closing for several months. First only accessible via stairs, you can now climb up to the 2nd floor riding the lift. We recommend you book tickets early. You can also enjot a 50% off discount from July 1 to August 31 for children. And good news, the top reopens on July 15, 2020.

When one says "Paris", one also thinks about it. For 130 years, the Eiffel Tower has been towering over the French capital. By nightfall, it lights up and breaks through the sky with its flash of light. By the corner of a street, you can see it, from its height, it seems to wave at us. This is how our Iron Lady hits its mark with Parisians.

On its website, the Eiffel Tower announces the following health instructions:

  • all visitors (from 11 year’s old) shall wear a face mask ;
  • at first, only visits by the stairs will be available (second floor tickets by stairs including visit of the first floor). To ensure that ascending and descending visitors do not meet in the stairs, ascent will take place from the East pillar and descent by the West pillar ;
  • a limited number of visitors on the esplanade and on each floor will be secured ;
  • significant signage and ground markings are installed to implement physical distancing ; 
  • daily cleaning and disinfection of public spaces at the Tower.

Please note that booking tickets online is not mandatory but highly recommended, not only will it enable you to avoid waiting for a long time at the ticket office, respect health measures better, but you will be sure to make it. As a matter of fact, limits will be made to keep up health standards implemented and avoid any containment situation in lifts.

If first the tour could be enjoyed up to the 2nd floor by staris from June 25 to 30, 2002 (climbing up by the eastern stairs, and down by the western stairs to make sure no one runs into each other), the Western lift is now open since July 1st, but careful though, for now, only 16 visitors (8 per cabin) can go up at the same time and online booking prior to your visit is mandatory. The top reopens from July 15, 2020 and is limited to 150 people at the same time and half of the gauge in the lifts between the 2nd and 3rd floors.

To make sure it starts again well, the Société d'Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel (SETE) sets up a special offer for children from 4 to 11 years old. A 50% discount will be made on the total of the ticket, from July 1 to August 31, 2020:

  • €2 for a "lift" ticket to the 2nd floor (instead of €4.10)
  • €1.30 for a "stair" ticket to the 2nd floor (instead of €2.60)
  • €3.20 for a top ticket (instead of €6.50)
  • Of course, it remains free for children under 4 years old

All summer long, enjoy the festive terrace moving on to Summer Chill mode for beautiful weekends.
