Climbing the Eiffel Tower Is About to Get More Expensive 🚀

Starting June 17, visiting the Eiffel Tower will become more costly. The iconic Paris landmark is increasing its ticket prices, affecting both elevator and stair access. French network BFMTV reported.

New Ticket Prices:

  • Adult Elevator Ticket to the Top: €35.30 ($38.40), up from €29.40 ($31.98)
  • Adult Elevator Ticket to the Second Floor: €22.60 ($24.58), up from €18.80 ($20.45)
  • Adult Stair Access Ticket: €14.20 ($15.45), up from €11.80 ($12.84)

Children under 4 years old will still have free entry.

Reasons for the Increase

The price hike is attributed to the significant drop in visitors from 2020 to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Eiffel Tower saw only 1.5 million visitors in 2020, compared to its usual nearly 7 million annually. This decrease resulted in a substantial financial loss of €113 million ($1.23 million) over the two years.

Impact of the Upcoming Paris Olympics

The ticket price increase comes as Paris prepares for the Summer Olympics. The Eiffel Tower will remain open during the Games, except for the opening ceremony on July 26, which will occur along the Seine and conclude at the Trocadéro, opposite the tower.

For those planning a trip to Paris, it’s important to note these changes and budget accordingly for a visit to one of the world’s most famous landmarks.
