Spiral staircase section

Did you know that originally it was a spiral staircase which linked the second floor to the top? Gustave Eiffel would use it to reach the office that he‘d set up for himself! As it had become obsolete, the staircase was taken down in 1983.

Twenty sections were subsequently sold at auction for a very good price.

On the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, you can take a closer look at one of the remaining pieces of this historic staircase. It measures 4.30 meters in height.

Children tour "Follow Gus"

Enjoy exploring the Tower

The little Gus character, dressed in the style of Gustave Eiffel, accompanies children on a fun and educational experience dedicated to children aged 6 to 10.

Equipped with a bilingual French-English booklet-game and a little pencil provided for them, young visitors learn a thousand aspects of the history of the Eiffel Tower, about its creator but also about the landscape of Paris seen from that level.

Signs bearing the Gus character guide children through each stage of the tour.
