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 November 2015

View from 59th floor was breathtaking and we were in time to see the 7pm Eiffel Tower light show, amazing. We had champaigne on the roof top, but the young lady serving was unsure about the ñibbles which were included. We did speak to the wonderful lady in the small restaurant on floor 56 who provided exceptional service with nibbles for our group of 8. Lift goes to floor 56 and then you climb stairs to level 59. If stairs are too difficult, the view is still brilliant from floor 56. We visited on 28th October 2015 and it was quite cold on the rooftop as expected for this time of the year.

Great vantage point to see all of Paris, plus you can see the Eiffel tower instead of looking out from it.

Amazing. So glad we got to see Paris from this side. We arrived early evening, enjoyed a bite to eat at the cafe and the views from that level. Then we made our way to the top were the view was outstanding. Had a glass of champagne and watched Paris turn into night. Beautiful.

Had a lovely view of Paris , including the Eiffel Tower. You could use the voucher any time you chose. We went up in the late afternoon and stayed until sunset. Not too crowded and you could have a glass of wine , sit down and take in the view.

Worth the money.. you can see the whole landscape of Paris. It was really windy up on the deck so we were shivering while waiting for the lights on Eiffel Tower to come up
