The Eiffel Tower is celebrating its 120 year anniversary with an innovative light display every night from October 22nd to December 31st at 8pm, 9pm, 10pm and 11pm.

For the first time, relying on state-of-the-art LED spotlights, the Trocadero facade of the Eiffel Tower will light up in color with a moving light show.

The light show follows immediately after the usual 5 minutes sparkling white lights and will last another 12 minutes.   The anniversary show starts with a dynamic light sequence evoking the extraordinary construction of the Tower.  Next a shower of light, revolving from level to level,  rhythmic, color blending…a splendid tribute to the Eiffel Tower and its majestic structure.

During the light show, the other facades of the monument will contribute an element to the choreography. Also, images will be projected onto the ground below.
