Iconic, elegant, romantic. The instantly recognisable Eiffel Tower has stood watch over Paris for more than 100 years.
Standing 300 m (984 ft) high and weighing 10, 100 tonnes (22.2 million lb), the Maurice Koechlin-designed tower was selected from 107 submissions for a competition to build a structure that would act as an entrance arch for the 1889 Exposition Universelle (World Fair).
For more than 40 years the Eiffel Tower was also the Tallest building, a record currently held by the 828-m (2,716 ft 6 in) Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE. However it remains the Tallest iron structure.
Brave visitors to the tower can take on the 1,665 steps which wind their way to the top where a viewing platform offers panoramic views of Paris.
There are also two of the tower’s original elevators still in operation today. Every year these lifts will cover a distance of 103,000km (64,000 miles) – which is equivalent to two-and-a-half times around the world. Guinness World Records is giving you the chance to win a LEGO version of this legendary tower.
