The Apartment at the Top of the Eiffel Tower

Did You Know There's a Private Apartment Inside the Eiffel Tower?!

Visiting the Eiffel Tower is on many people's bucket lists, but there's only one man who dared to live atop the famed French structure: Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, the tower's architect. He built himself a tiny apartment at the top of the structure, 1,000 feet above Paris because, well, why not?

While Eiffel reportedly received many generous offers to rent his coveted pied-a-terre, he refused them all, keeping the apartment as a private retreat and workshop, where he is said to have entertained the era's great minds, including Thomas Edison.

Today, however, any average Joe can visit the apartment as it's open to the public. Check it out below or visit in person if you're in Paris.
