The Eiffel Tower reopens to visitors in a few days

Just in time for the holidays

Very soon it will once again be possible to visit the most recognizable monument of France – The Eiffel Tower. In a “safety mode” but fully operational, the “Iron lady” reopens to the public as of Wednesday 16 December. Make sure to book your tickets online well in advance, as the number of visitors allowed on its premises will be limited, in order to comply with the sanitary protocol in place.

The Tower is one of the most frequently visited paid monuments worldwide

Earlier this week the website of the Eiffel Tower surprised locals and tourists with an important announcement. Just a couple of days before Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the public will be invited to once again marvel at this spectacular monument from up close and gaze at the beauties of Paris from one of the most romantic places possible.

To comply with the coronavirus restrictions in place, however, the number of visitors permitted on its premises at any given time will be limited; they will also be required to maintain a safe distance and wear a mask at all times. That is why, if you want to be among the first to visit the monument after its reopening, book your ticket via this link.

Furthermore, the opening times have been adjusted, until the beginning of January. They are as follows:

  • From December 16 to December 18: from 10:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. (monument closing at 6:30 p.m.)
  • From December 18 to January 3, 2021: ‘from 9:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. (monument closing at 6:30 p.m.)
  • From January 4, 2021: from 10:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. (monument closing at 6.30 p.m.). The opening times in January might change depending on changes in the health situation and government instructions.

The Eiffel Tower’s top stands at 276 metres and there is an elevator for those who are not afraid of heights. The second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs, is also challenging with its 116 metres.

The lowest level of the monument – the first floor – is “just” 57 metres high. The entire public part of the monument is accessible to people with disabilities.
