5 FUN FACTS ABOUT THE EIFFEL TOWER

  1. It was supposed to be called “Tour Boenickhausen”, the real name of Gustave Eiffel, descendant of German clothiers settled in the Marais district in the early seventeenth century. But Eiffel was chosen,as it was much easier to pronounce.
  2. Between 1925 and 1934 a Citroen light ad was installed in each of four faces of the tower. The brightest announcement of its time.
  3. In 1909, before it was decided that the tower would be kept, a scammer had managed to sell it twice to scrap dealers, who had made them believe that the tower was going to be dismantled and sent to scrap.
  4. For the 85th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower, an elephant from the Bouglione circus climbed the stairs up to the first floor!
  5. There are 20,000 lightbulbs that glow every day for 5 minutes at the beginning of each hour, from dusk until 1am.
