Majestic, iconic, unique, the Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Paris around the world. A true focal point of the city, it stands proudly and is wonderfully illuminated by night to the great delight of all onlookers. Here we offer a selection of the best spots from which to admire the timeless Iron Lady during your stay at the Hotel de la Motte Picquet.
Les Ombres; lunch with a bird's eye view
Les Ombres is a charming restaurant located on the roof terrace of the Quai Branly Museum on the banks of the Seine. The Eiffel Tower is just a short distance away and, as you will also be high up, you’ll have the impression of being alone in the sky with this magnificent monument. Comfortably seated with a gourmet dish, you can admire every detail of the iron arabesques that comprise the monument’s graceful form!
L'Oiseau Blanc; luxury and a superb viewpoint
Situated in the 16th arrondissement, the Oiseau Blanc invites you to enjoy the great creations of this gourmet restaurant’s talented chef while gazing out at the spectacle of the roofs of Paris. The 360-degree view is simply breathtaking, and lets you see the city as never before, with the beautiful Eiffel Tower standing tall against the sky across the river.
Palais de Tokyo, arty ambience and a breathtaking panorama
The Palais de Tokyo contemporary art museum faces the Eiffel Tower. When you visit you won’t be able to resist staring in awe at the view of the capital’s world-famous landmark as seen from the museum’s steps. This earthbound perspective allows you to appreciate the power of its architecture, underscored by the Seine, which separates you from it. For your stay in the capital, opt for the Hotel de la Motte Piquet, a welcoming, friendly and chic establishment close to the Eiffel Tower.
