Is our Eiffel tower unique ?
This is a good question. Are there any other EIFFEL TOWER all around the world. You’ve already seen it under many lines.
- As a key holder,
- or as a decorativ light
- as a candle ….
But is our Eiffel Tower UNIQUE or some other EIFFEL TOWER all around the world? The answer will not surprise you: NO. But the number of Eiffel Towers and the number of countries that have one in various forms will surely surprise you. Nearly 100 Eiffel Towers have been listed, with nearly 30 countries represented.
Let’s go and discover them. I’ve given you the grace of too many bad lines. As well as the too small ones. In the same way I have removed all the ephemera (you know, lemon, corn, brick …) that were celebrating an event. I didn’t put the ones that have disappeared either, because they were made of wood for example.
Of course, between the time I write these lines and the day you read them, it is possible that some news have come out, or that others have disappeared, so if you have any information, please let me know by contacting me and I will update the article.
Some facts about the Eiffel tower
Built for the 1889 World’s Fair, it was 312 metres long and red. Today it measures 324 metres (antennas have been added).
Why more than 300 meters, in order to surpass the mythical bar of the 1000 feet in English measure, because we were competing with them to build the highest tower in the world.

But before we start our round-the-world tour is this ours the highest?
Again, I may disappoint you, but …. NO. The highest is based in Tokyo, Japan. Built in 1958, it measures 332.5 metres. Its name: the Tokyo tower. It is a telecommunication tower.
It is followed by the EIFFEL Tower in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, which measures 165m. The 3rd is in Blackpool in England, but I also put here the 4th highest Macau in China with 150m because it is placed like the one in Las Vegas in a hotel and commercial complex.
