Get them interested and tell them about the history of the Eiffel Tower
One thing I can assure you that will get them excited about visiting the city of Paris and the Eiffel Tower is to include them in the plans for the trip. Ask them what they wish to visit. Get them interested and excited. Introduce them to the history of the Eiffel Tower to awaken their curiosity, so they have questions to be answered while visiting the Eiffel Tower.
Join the activities provided at the Eiffel Tower
On the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, get a booklet-game and a pencil at the Ferrié pavilion. This activity is totally free and it is a great way for the children to discover and explore the tower. The kids will be able to learn about many aspects of the monument, but also about its creators and the perspectives of Paris you get from the tower as well.
As you walk through the first floor, you will find plenty of fun and interesting things to do, such as a museum, a glass floor and an immersive film. There are seasonal events as well, like ice rinks during the winter and a terrace during the summer. Along the many areas of this floor, signs of the little Gus character, based on the creator Gustave Eiffel, will guide the children through their activity.
Reassure the children
Make sure your kids are not afraid of heights. If they are, you probably shouldn’t take them to the top of the Eiffel Tower. But I truly think it is an unforgettable experience that they will thoroughly enjoy! If they are afraid of heights but still want to go up the tower, you should let them. It can be a good way for them to fight their fears.
Also, since the Eiffel Tower can sometimes get very crowded, don’t lose sight of your children. Stay close to them and don’t let them walk away from you.
