Who built the Eiffel Tower?

Eiffel Tower

The French engineer Gustave Eiffel designed the Eiffel Tower. The tower, arguably the most well-known monument in the world, is the tallest structure in Paris. It was completed in 1889, and it has had several hundred million visitors since it opened. A workforce of about 250 riveted in excess of 18,000 pieces of iron together to erect this long-lived landmark (it was not originally slated to be left standing), which has a structural design credited to Maurice Koechlin.

Though named after a project of Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower - symbol of Paris - has its structural concept and form from the responsible chief engineer Maurice Koechlin. Koechlin was an engineer of outstanding ingenuity and well versed in the structural techniques of his time. He possessed therefore the best qualifications for evolving such technically innovative conceptions for which Eiffel and his firm were renowned.

The Eiffel Tower was named after and designed by Gustave Eiffel. Gustave was also assisted by engineers Émile Nouguier and Maurice Koechli. The main architect was Stephen Sauvestre. Before the Eiffel Tower was built, a total of 50 engineers made 5,300 blueprints. The Eiffel Tower was a big structure, and probably many people built it. Many research resources listed a number too big or too small, but I finally settled on a number I found in more than one research database, which is around 300.

The European landmark, the Eiffel Tower (in French, la Tour Eiffel, pronounced la two-er eff-ell) was designed by and named after French engineer Gustave Eiffel. It was opened on May 6, 1889.

Its structural design was by Maurice Koechlin; its architects were Koechlin, Emile Nougier and Stephen Sauvestre.

Built as the entrance to the 1889 Exposition Universelle, the Paris World Fair held to celebrate the centenary of the French Revolution, it is an iron lattice structure, 324m (1,063 ft) tall, built in 1889, and has become one of the world's most recognizable and iconic buildings. It is located on the Champ de Mars, in Paris. Originally disliked by many, it became fashionable to criticize the tower, though the people of Paris came to accept it.

How do you get from Disneyland Paris to the Eiffel Tower?

Directions From the Eiffel tower to Disneyland Paris

These are, perhaps, the most complicated metro directions in all of Paris, because, in fact, the Eiffel Tower is the least accessible (via metro) monument in all of Paris! Not to say it isn't accessible, because it is. It's just that most everywhere else in Paris has a metro within snapping-fingers distance. At the Eiffel Tower, you actually have to walk a few blocks to get to one.

Your best bet is to take either the Bir-Hakeim metro stop (line 6 - direction to Nation), then change at Nation to RER line A to Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy station. This is the simplest route, from downtown Paris to the front gates of Disneyland.

Or take the École Militaire metro (line 8 - direction Créteil-Prefecture), and change at Gare de Lyon to RER line A to Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy station.

Or from the RER C station "Champ de Mars-Tour Eiffel" (the station is near the bridge), take the RER line C direction "SAINT MARTIN D'ETAMPES", change stations at "Saint-Michel Notre-Dame", take RER line B towards "AEROPORT CH.DE GAULLE 2-MITRY CLAYE", change stations at "Chatelet-Les Halles", take RER line A towards "MARNE LA VALLEE-BOISSY SAINT LEGER". This should be the fastest route, but you have an additional change of station.

Is it worth it to wait in line to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower?

The views from the top of the Eiffel Tower are breathtaking and you will be able to snap some pretty great photos, even in the midst of such a large concentration of people. Also, it's worth considering that journeying to the top of the Eiffel Tower is one of those once in a lifetime activity that many people dream of but never get to experience. Sometimes the value of the opportunity outweighs the reality. All in all, if time allows it and lines and crowds don't frighten you, I would encourage everyone to do venture to the top of the Eiffel Tower at least once. But if you're working within a very limited span of time, skip the long wait and the journey to the top in favor of spending that precious half day of touring time more wisely.

There are much better views from: 4th Beaubourg (Centre Pompidou - with the advantage that it's both central and free. 3rd The Arc de Triomphe - that straight line East to the Louvre and West to la Defense is amazing. 2nd The towers of Notre Dame - completely central, but with one snag - you can't see Notre Dame from there. 1st by a mile: the tenth floor of the SAMARITAINE department store at the end of the Pont neuf. DO NOT MISS THIS. Go into the store at the river entrance - that way you'll get the right building, there are four but only one on the riverside - and find the elevator that goes to the 9th floor. From there, take the stair up to the roof terrace. You can buy a coffee (not expensive, astonishingly) and see most of the view from there; or you can find the little spiral stair to the viewing platform and MARVEL. You are in the very middle of Paris, every major monument is in sight, most of them within a mile, and IT'S FREE.
