The Eiffel Tower in Paris has reopened to the public after being closed for months. Tickets for the first day were already sold out online in the run-up to the reopening.
The world-famous monument closed at the end of October after the number of corona infections increased in France. This already happened in the spring of 2020. Now that there are fewer infections, the Eiffel Tower will open again. Measures are being taken to prevent infections among visitors.
A maximum of 10,000 people is admitted per day. They must, among other things, wear mouth caps and keep their distance from each other. In addition, from July 21, adult visitors with a special corona pass must demonstrate that they have been vaccinated, tested negative or have recently recovered from Covid-19. For children from 12 years old, this rule applies from August 30.
The Eiffel Tower is usually visited by about seven million people a year. However, last year, the “iron lady” was rarely visited due to the corona measures and the absence of foreign tourists. The iconic building of more than 300 meters high opened to the public in 1889.
