About Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower was constructed between 1887 & 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, held in Paris. It is a wrought iron structure and is named after Gustave Eiffel. The maintenance of the tower requires over 60 tons of paint every 7 years. The tower has been painted 19 times since it’s inception.
It held the title for being the tallest building in the world for 41 years until the Chrysler building came up in New York City. However, due to the addition of the broadcasting antenna at the top of the tower, it is now taller than the Chrysler.
People exceeding the count of 250 million visited the monument upon it’s completion and the numbers are ever increasing.

Eiffel Tower Facts
The Eiffel Tower elevators travel a distance of 103,000 km a year, which is two and a half times the circumference of the earth. This is because it is the world’s most visited paid monument with 7 million tourists flocking to Paris each year. The tower does not have a fixed height, since it changes with the weather conditions, shrinking in winters and expanding by 6 inches in the summer. The structure has some experience in marketing since it was home to a billboard for Citreon. This was the biggest advertisement recorded by the Guinness Book of Records.
More interestingly, Gustave Eiffel also got an apartment designed for himself within the tower, which is now open for access to the public.
The sides of the tower’s first balcony are engraved with the name of 72 scientist and mathematicians who have contributed to the construction of the tower in any way.
The most important reward that Gustave Eiffel left for us is the view that the tower gives. There is no other building in the world that can provide you with a 360 degree of this French city, obviously.
There is no questioning the rawness and beauty of the picturesque landscape that the Eiffel let’s us witness.
