The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
How to get there
  • Montparnasse – Bienvenüe • 2 min walk

It's okay - could probably do with a bit of a touch up. Compared to other observatory towers we'd visited in other major cities around the world it didn't feel as well put together. Still, great views of Paris.

Myself, husband, 10 month old and his grandparents visited here a few weekends back. I somehow managed to book the wrong day, but the stewardess kindly liaised with her manager and allowed us entry. Level 56 is enclosed and level 59 is open. There are 360° views which are fantastic. There is also a video on the lower level that shows Paris' skyline overtime. The views were fantastic. I'm so glad we did this rather than go up the tower. I'd highly recommend.

We booked this by pure chance and it was brilliant! The views that you get from the top are amazing.

It wasn't as busy as the Eiffel tower and getting up to the top was so easy to do.

We are really glad that we did this and i would recommended it to anyone that is in Paris.

There are some nice restaurants around the tower as well where you can go for a nice snack either before or after going to the top.

There are some VR goggles on the lower floor which makes the whole experience a lot more interactive!

A Hidden gem. Fantastic all around roof view. Well worth the visit, fabulous view of the city and probably the best. No hassle from lots of people. Other features like the travel through the ages HD film show and some historical info.
Other than the confusion of getting into the building an excellent visit and once your done a great area to shop or eat.

Fantastic view of Paris, with best view of Eiffel. My 11 year old boy was very happy, because he is afraid of height but it was very safe to go to the top

Great place to view Paris especially if you'd like the Eifel Tower in your pictures. Airport like security but worked okay.

Fantastic view of Paris and the video showing the transformation of Paris through the centuries was awesome!
The views from every side were outstanding. The tower can be seen from everywhere and we were lucky enough to be staying in the same street where the tower is located.

Absolute Joke.... firstly the whole area feels like East Berlin at the height of the separation. Like I'm talking sketchy as....with zero signage or help. Also, don't bother booking tickets. We booked tickets months in advance and we still had to stand in a queue outside in the rain with everyone else that didn't have tickets left. The "staff" said yes, you queue like everyone else. Honestly a money making racquet before the building and area is levelled and redeveloped.

Absolutely terrible.

This building is called the middle finger by Parisians and the "tour" is an absolute middle to anyone stupid enough to buy a ticket or visit.

We arrived up on the observation deck 20 minutes early, to be go back downstairs as we weren't getting in because of our early arrival. The observation deck was absolutely empty. We went downstairs and promptly left. Very rude 😒
