    Tips to stay safe at the Eiffel Tower


    Easily one of the most enchanting cities in the world, a trip to Paris is sure to be a sojourn for all of the senses. Unbeatable cuisine, world-famous boutiques, phenomenal landmarks, including the eminent Eiffel Tower, Paris really is second-to-none.

    That being said, with so much to see and do, accidents abroad do occur. It is likely that a visit to the Eiffel Tower will be on  your Parisian itinerary, and caution is the key to minimising the risk of injury during your visit. After all, the last thing on your mind in Paree should be travel accident compensation.

    Eiffel Tower health and safety

    You simply cannot visit Paris and miss the opportunity to visit one of the most famous landmarks in the world. Erected in 1889, the tower stands at 324 metres tall, a height at which it proudly guards the Champ de Mars.

    As we all know, however, with such heights, come great falls. While it is highly unlikely that you will fall the full height of the Eiffel Tower, slips, trips and falls are among the potential Eiffel Tower accidents.

    When visiting the Eiffel Tower, the top three hazards to be aware of are:

    1. Slippery steps and flooring due to adverse weather conditions
    2. Cramped or overly busy areas, leading to trips and falls
    3. Pickpockets, which often operate in busy tourist areas in Paris

    Minimising accidents at the Eiffel Tower

    To minimise your risk of experiencing an accident at the Eiffel Tower, you really only need to adopt a little assertiveness.

    Use lifts where possible, to avoid slips on open stairs. Stay to marked walkways and do not attempt to deviate from designated routes.

    Nowadays, it is also important to remember that there is a time and a place for selfies! Choose a spot where you aren’’t likely to suffer a holiday accident, or cause a hazard for other visitors.
