What You Can Expect

Montparnasse Tower 56th Floor Observation Deck

Montparnasse Tower 56th Floor Observation Deck

Like the Empire State Building in New York and the London Eye, the Montparnasse Tower (Tour Montparnasse) offers unrivaled views of the city below. Far beyond the hustle and bustle of the Montparnasse square, you can stand on the very roof of the capital. The city is spread out before you, swarming with life. By using the viewpoint indicators, you can locate and see each of the districts and their monuments.

Ascend the Montparnasse Tower to its fully renovated 56th floor, with its friendlier and more impressive surroundings. In just 38 seconds, Europe's fastest elevator will take you to a height of 689 feet (210 meters), where the most beautiful views of Paris stretch out before you from a modern, relaxed and very comfortable setting.

A large number of audiovisual and interactive facilities are also available to help you discover and understand Paris; photo galleries, interactive screens, panoramic projection on the legend of towers in the world, quizzes, video clips of Paris, viewpoint tables and more.

The panoramic bar also gives you the chance to enjoy a gourmet break as you take in the view across the capital.

Every hour of the day has its own special charm and light... but the sunset over Paris and the lights of the city are simply breathtaking.

Rooftop Champagne Bar
From March to October, enjoy a glass of Champagne from Paris' highest roof terrace while gazing out over the city. The newly-installed Champagne bar gives you the chance to fully appreciate the sights and sounds of Paris from the roof with a glass in hand.

Music on the Rooftop
Head up to the roof terrace from 7pm on a Friday evening from the end of April to the end of June and let the sounds of the accordion and the clarinet provide the soundtrack to your visit. Watch the sun set over the city as you sip Champagne and admire the view while listening to swing, jazz or traditional French songs.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great value for money. Super 360 degree views of Paris and being far less crowded than Tour Eiffel gave much better opportunities to take landscape and personal photos.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

I enjoyed doing this, even though it wasn't a tour as such. Had great views of Paris and spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower. Thoroughly enjoyed my glass of Champagne watching the sun go down, lights take over and the light show at the Eiffel Tower. Would recommend.

Amazing 360-degree view of Paris! A little off the main tour lines, but worth it. It's not too crowded and there are great places to eat and shop at the bottom of the building.

Well worth a look. The views of Paris are exceptional. Try to be there as the sunset, although in summer this is quite late.
