City Sightseeing / Paris
Eiffel tower - famous symbol of Paris
Tip: Who wants to get on the Eiffel tower (french: la tour Eiffel) on a short holiday or a business trip without long waiting queue, can book a Ticket at the French Internet portal http://www.tour-eiffel.fr online. Just select the day and the time window (min intervals 30). The ticket you can print out as a pdf-document. You can choose tickets for the Eiffel tower summit or for the second Platform (rather unexciting).
The 324-meter-high Eiffel Tower was built in the period from January 1887 to March 1889 for the World Exhibition and the centenary of the French Revolution by the company Gustave Eiffel & Cie. Gustave Eiffel gave the tower with the unique steel structure his name.
On weekends sometimes brave Parisian firemen climb in the steel girders of the Eiffel Tower up to the first or second platform and are abseiling down from this height.
