  4. The Montparnasse Tower Panoramic Observation Deck


Perched on the 56th floor, at an altitude of 196 meters, the Montparnasse Tower Observation Deck is the ideal place to get a panoramic view over the whole city. There are two parts to the visit: the 56th floor interior area, and the terrace with panoramic views, where you can see Paris spread out before you, and enjoy its beauty both in the daytime, or when it is lit up at night.

A unique panorama

After barely 38 seconds spent inside the fastest lift in Europe, you reach the summit. In this luminous space entirely surrounded by windows, discover the capital with the help of telescopes, interactive terminals and touch-screen tables for orienting you. 185 archival photos and a film about the architectural symbolism of towers throughout the world will have you delving deeper into the world of skyscrapers. On the same floor, the Café à 360 is on hand for a meal or refreshments.

An uninterrupted view of Paris’ major monuments also awaits you on the large panoramic terrace surrounded by windows. In the foreground, you’ll see the Montparnasse cemetery, and further away, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, as well as the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and further still, the La Défense neighbourhood… For a truly magical treat when the weather is fine, head to the Champagne Bar to soak in the view, a glass in hand.
