The Eiffel Tower is one of the greatest works in human history located in the beautiful Paris capital of France. To this day, the Eiffel Tower has always been considered a symbol of the “light capital” of Paris in particular and of France in general. Therefore, each year the Eiffel Tower attracts more than 7 million visitors to visit.
The Eiffel Tower is also considered the tallest tower in the world with 1,671 steps, the tower is made of 15,000 iron plates and 2.5 million rivets, weighing 8,092 tons.

The “father” of this world-famous tower was engineer Gustave Eiffel. Few know that during the design of the famous tower named after him, Gustave even built a secret room on top of his own tower and almost no one was allowed to set foot in it.
Different from the elaborate structure of the tower, the room is just a simple residence like many other common rooms in Paris in the 19th century.
The room also has carpets, wallpaper, cabinets and a bedroom. This may not be the most luxurious comfortable room in Paris but this is definitely the best place to admire the panoramic view of the beautiful city of Paris.

From here, one can admire the panoramic view of the Arc de Triomphe, the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur, the Seine and the many other beautiful sights of Paris.
In his book La Tour Eiffel de Trois Cent Métres, author Henri Girard explained at that time, visiting the room was the dream of all Parisians. Therefore, many people are willing to spend large sums of money to sleep in a room for one night, but their offers were rejected by the Eiffel engineer.

While the entire tower is made of steel, the small room is designed with wooden furniture, patterned wallpaper and a piano. The architect also designed a small laboratory where the high-tech scientific equipment of the time were located.
The room was also the place where the Eiffel engineer used to organize meetings during his time in Paris. The majority of guests at the parties were celebrities and influential people during that period including Thomas Edison.
The room was locked after the engineer died and was only reopened to the public in 2016. However, visitors can only see this room through the glass window, not inside. .
