Created in 2 years, 2 months and 5 days, the Eiffel Tower was built for the Exposition Universelle of 1889

Slide3:

The Passerelle Debilly (Debilly Footbridge) is a through arch bridge that connects the quai de New York to the quai Branly, close to the Eiffel Tower

Slide4:

In 1989, a German diplomat working for the Secret Service of the Democratic Republic of Germany was found dead on this footbridge, several days after the Fall of the Berlin Wall. As it turned out, the footbridge was used as a secret gathering place for the secret service agents of East Germany during the Cold War

Slide5:

It is certainly one of the reasons that pushed Brian De Palma to shoot a scene of his thriller Femme Fatale on that footbridge in 2002

You can go up the Eiffel Tower by the stairs or by lift. On the completely refurbished 1st floor, there are shops; on the 2nd, treat yourself to a gastronomic meal at the famous Jules Verne restaurant, 125 metres above ground. Finally on the 3rd floor you are at cloud level and have an exceptional 360° view! The top level's upper platform is 276 m (906 ft) above the ground – the highest observation deck accessible to the public in the European Union  

Slide10:

The Eiffel Tower stands 324 m tall, and weighs 10,100 tons The puddled iron (wrought iron) of the Eiffel Tower weighs 7,300 tons, and the addition of lifts, shops and antennae have brought the total weight to approx 10,100 tons

Slide11:

The tower is painted in three shades: lighter at the top, getting progressively darker towards the bottom to complement the Parisian sky. It was originally reddish brown; this changed in 1968 to a bronze colour known as "Eiffel Tower Brown”

Slide13:

The climb from ground level to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the climb from the first level to the second. Although there is a staircase to the top level, it is usually accessible only by lift
