The new 1st floor

With its transparent floor and new installations, the 1st floor is now one of the most spectacular and attractive places in Paris.

Experience a spectacular view down!

With its transparent floor and its glass balustrades, the 1st floor offers you a great experience and a breath-taking view.

Walk on the glass floor, 57m from the ground, and experience the unique sensation of stepping out into the void.

But you need have no fears: a non-slip treatment has been applied, with a transparency effect that increases gradually from the interior towards the central space and covering 1.85m at its largest.


Facilities to excite, stroll around and learn

Renovation at the service of accessibility

The renovation of the Eiffel Tower's 1st floor has been designed with an exemplary approach as to accessibility, so that every visitor can enjoy the best possible conditions for exploring the monument:

  • Obstacles eliminated
  • Suitable lighting
  • Non-slip floor treatment
  • Lifts and ramp
  • Museography adapted for visually-impaired people

Procedures for the visit


An exemplary sustainable development approach

Although there is no "High Environmental Quality" benchmark for the Eiffel Tower, one of the principal goals of the first floor's renovation responded to a strong wish to reduce its ecological footprint in the context of the City of Paris Climate Plan.

  • Heat gains reduced by more than 25% in summer
  • LEDlighting
  • Equipped with solar panels
  • Rainwater collection system
  • Powerfulheat pumps
  • 2 wind turbines are being installed, to generate 10,000 kWh a year
An outstanding renovation project

Over 2 years of work during which the Tower remained open to the public!

  • 4,586 m² redeveloped, out of the floor's 5420 m².
  • Work carried out 57 metres above the city
  • A 141 m2, lifting platform with a capacity of 9 tonnes
  • € 30M excluding taxes: the total cost of the renovation, including fees, entirely funded by SETE (Société d'Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel: the Eiffel Tower Operating Company).
  • An "influenced" architecture designed entirely in diagonals and transparency by architects Moatti –Rivière
  • The last major renovation operation for the Eiffel Tower was carried out almost 30 years ago
