Learn to skate 57 meters above Paris...
A real skaters’ ramp, 15 meters long by 7.5 meters wide, will be installed on the first level of the Eiffel Tower, overlooking the Champ de Mars, for three days.
State-licensed skaters will be on hand to assist young and old, from 7 to 77 years old, in learning to skate inline. The champion team Taïg Khris, twice world champions, will demonstrate the moves.
...free to all visiting the Tower
All visitors to the Eiffel Tower will be admitted free of charge with their Eiffel Tower entrance tickets. You can reach the ramp either by the elevators or the stairs.
The stairs to the first floor represent 345 steps, a great way to warm-up before skating (skates are provided on site), especially for young adults less than 25 years old who can take advantage of the special price (3€).
World champions perform on the Eiffel Tower !
Monday, November 20th at 7:30 pm, Taïg Khris, Ambassador of the association Voix de l’Enfant, will show the spectators what champion skating is all about. Before, at 6:30 pm, Yoggy is going to attempt to beat his own world record in going up the Tower stairs on a monocycle, also organized by the association la Voix de l’Enfant that is celebrating 25 years of events on the Eiffel Tower.
