The Eiffel Tower fireworks and illuminations add to the magic of the iconic monument in Paris. The Eiffel Tower is even more beautiful at night than during the day. Its illuminations, the added 5 minute twinkle on every hour and the Bastille day fireworks, a dinner at Jules Verne restaurant are some of the most spectacular experiences in the city. Eiffel Tower facts.

Eiffel Tower illuminations at night

It was almost 110 years after the construction of the Eiffel Tower in 1889 that engineers added its famous lighting scheme. Lit by powerful light projectors and tens of thousands of bulbs, the tower is as visible after dark as it is during daytime. In addition, every night, the Eiffel Tower puts on a series of miniature light shows that add extra sparkle to the lighting. These sparkling lights make the tower twinkle for five minutes, every hour on the hour between sundown and 1 a.m. It takes 20,000 light bulbs installed over the course of five months to produce this effect. As they are all installed individually, they are able to flicker on and off at random to simulate any kind of effect. Eiffel Tower info.
