How can you climb the Eiffel Tower on foot? (2023)

You can take the stairs from the bottom of the Eiffel Tower up to the 2nd Floor. That means exactly 674 steps! In total, there are 1665 steps from the esplanade up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, but the stairway from the 2nd floor to the top is not open to the public. It will take about 30-45 minutes to climb the stairs to the 2nd floor. It all depends on how fit you are! However, please avoid taking the stairs with very young children or babies (gentle reminder: there is no space or locker room for left luggage), or anyone in poor health. The stairways are not open to visitors with reduced mobility.
