An Apartment At The Top Of The Eiffel Tower? Yep, You Read That Right!

Gustave Eiffel’s apartment had a lot of things going for it: beautiful furnishings, a grand piano, and its prime location were all part of its appeal. The cherry on top is that his apartment is actually located at the top of the architectural masterpiece that he designed: the Eiffel tower!

After the Eiffel Tower opened in 1889, Eiffel himself would entertain some of the greatest scientific minds in his pied-à-terre high above Paris. For many years, Eiffel’s apartment was off limits to tourists, but you can peer into it today and see what it was like in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
