The Eiffel Tower as a well-frequented historical monument must ensure the safety of its visitors.
On an exceptional basis, all or part of the visitor-accessible spaces could be closed and hand bags checked. No large-sized hand baggage nor animals will be allowed onto the monument except for Seeing Eye dogs. Furthermore, there is no baggage check service available at the Tower.


Visitors may climb the stairs or take the elevators to go up the Eiffel Tower.

The stairs are open to the public and go up to the second floor

Three elevators go up to the first and second floors. Only one or two will be in service on any given day due to maintenance and security reasons.

To reach the top of the Tower, visitors must take another elevator from the second floor.
