Using LED spotlights the Trocadero facade of the Tower will light up in color, movement and modulation offering a magical and awesome show. The Light show design is by Bernard Schmitt & Jacques Rouveyrollis, implemented by Citelum with Magnum

Citroën, a lighting partner of the Eiffel Tower in its earlier days (1925-34), has contributed to the Tower illuminations. For the occasion, Citroën will stream the light show of October 22 on www.citroen.com

Eiffel Tower – Description

The tower is 300m high; antenna up to 324m.

Tallest building globally until the Chrysler Building was completed in 1930.

This has to be the most famous structure in Paris, an early skyscraper that was not liked by many when built but now symbolises Paris, and France, to the world.
