The world famous attraction will be more expensive.  The changes come into force in mid-June

The Eiffel Tower is definitely one of the most popular attractions in the world. Tourists pay for tickets every year to enter at least the second floor. It turns out that prices will soon be higher.

The new price list for admission to the Eiffel Tower may surprise visitors. The first differences will be felt by those who go there during the holiday season. From mid-June we will pay more for tickets. According to foreign media reports, these are the last weeks in which you can save and buy a cheaper ticket.

Eiffel Tower tickets increase

Tickets for the Eiffel Tower are sold primarily at the on-site ticket offices and on the monument's official website. We always have several options to choose from, including: entering the second floor by stairs and taking the elevator to the very top, or taking the elevator from the ground floor to the very top. It's similar with leaving the summit. Sometimes you can also buy a package with a glass of champagne or even a meal at a restaurant available on site. The offers vary in price, but so far an adult paid EUR 29.40, which is approximately PLN 125.

After the changes, which will come into force in mid-June, tourists will spend more on attractions. The increases will be 20%, which means that a ticket to the Eiffel Tower will cost at least EUR 35.30, i.e. PLN 150. Children from 12 to 14 years old will pay EUR 17.70, and those from 4 to 11 years old will pay EUR 8.90.

The Eiffel Tower will be more expensive for a specific reason

The facility's managers explain that the increases are to cover the cost of necessary renovation works on the tower. Renovations – including painting – are scheduled to last until 2027. A review of the elevators that will take you to the top has also been planned. This also means that on certain days the attraction may be unavailable to visitors.

The increase in fees is also intended to compensate for significant financial losses during the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions. Data reported by foreign media show, among others: that in 2020 there were only about 1.6 million visitors there, while previously there were over 6 million tourists. Such a sudden change over the course of a year caused big financial problems.

In 2021, it was slightly better than in 2020, but the prison was still visited by less than 2.1 million people. SETE data shows that during the pandemic years, operating costs were three times higher than total financial turnover.
