PRESS RELEASE

THE ICE RINK IS BACK ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE EIFFEL TOWER

December 2015

From the 1st December 2015 to 31 January 2016, Parisians and visitors to the capital can enjoy 190m² of ice, 57m above Paris.

A fun skating rink with a sustainable development theme

This Winter the ice rink on the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower echoes the COP21. The ice rink’s bar is made from wood pallets and recycled material.  A 6m Eiffel Tower made from wood adds to the theme. The perfect spot for memorable photos!

What’s more there are 3 wooden bikes on the edge of the pistes where visitors can have fun while they are waiting – the faster you pedal, the more the suspensions light up.

… open to everyone

Skates (sizes 25 to 47) are free for visitors*. And there are scooters and sled-chairs for the little ones. Disabled people can enjoy the rink too, with easy access and sled-chairs for adults.

A bar at 57m altitude

A bar on the edge of the skating rink, made from pallets and recycled material, is accessible to both spectators and skaters! New this year: lentil and bacon soup, pan-fry of Savoie Winter specialities, or the Bio Seed Bretzel for 3€.

Discover – or rediscover – the Eiffel Tower

Skating is a fun and sporty activity for a day or evening out with family or friends. The skating rink is another good reason to visit the Tower,  with the other new attractions: the glass floor on the 1st level, the museographic circuit, the immersive film, etc.
