Quite simply the best views in Paris...

Enjoy breathtaking 360° views across Paris including the Eiffel Tower in all its glory from the top of the city's tallest building. For an extra special experience, why not sip a chilled glass of champagne as you admire the views?

Our guide to Paris Montparnasse - Top of the City

The best way to experience a new city is to climb to the top of the tallest building and enjoy the wonderful views.

At 210 meters, Tour Montparnasse towers above Paris and from the 56th floor, you can see for more than forty kilometers across Paris and beyond.  

The views are better than the top of the Eiffel Tower as not only do you see all of the city - you also get to see France’s most famous landmark itself.  

Visit during the day and see the city in all its brilliance or visit at night and see the spectacular illuminations.

You will be taken to the top of the tower by Europe’s fastest elevator where you can experience wonderful views over the city and across to the Eiffel Tower. 


The tower is open daily, year round.

Start times

The Observatory is open every day from 11.00am to 10:30pm. The last lift goes up 30 minutes before closing time.

    Went into the wrong place at first, but they told me the entrance was round the side, then got stopped and got told to wait by staff, felt like i was back at school! got up to the top and they views were good could have been better as it started to rain and was getting foggy. Had to wait in a long queue to go back down in the lift.
