The City of Lights is acclaimed for its beauty throughout the world, and Paris offers a beautiful urban landscape both in the day and at night. The best way to enjoy these amazing sights is to climb up high above the city’s skyline! Michaël Zingraf Real Estate reveals all the places where you can gaze out on a panoramic view of the capital. 

360° panoramic view from the Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is without a doubt the most iconic monument in Paris. It is also, of course, the one that offers one of the impressive views of the capital. The city reveals all its secrets from all the way up there! You can catch a glimpse of most of the city’s famous buildings and districts. Climb up to the second floor to see the monuments even better, then up to the third floor to enjoy the view over 276 meters up. 

Panoramic view from up at Montmartre

Located right at the top of the Montmartre hill, the paved square in front of the Sacré-Coeur basilica offers a spectacular view over all of Paris. In the distance, you can even make out the Eiffel Tower. The bravest among you can climb up on foot into the basilica’s huge dome, for an even higher viewpoint. In any case, you will get one of the best sights of Paris. Great in the day and at night!

The Champs-Elysées from the Arc du Triomphe

Do you wish to admire the most famous avenue in the world and see it light up at night? Then climb the 284 steps of the Arc de Triomphe, up to the panoramic terrace looking out over the Champs-Elysées and several other iconic monuments. The view is particularly spectacular at Christmas time. 

A breathtaking view of Paris from the Montparnasse Tower

The famous Montparnasse tower offers a stunning view from its panoramic observatory on the 56th floor. No wonder - it is the highest skyscraper in Paris! Shoot up there in just 38 seconds using the tower’s lift - the quickest in Europe. 

The Seine River from the Citroën park balloon

There is nothing more romantic than admiring Paris from a hot-air balloon! In the André Citroën park, a hot-air balloon offers rides 150 meters up off the ground to gaze out upon the capital. From up there, you can enjoy a perfectly clear view of La Défense, the Eiffel Tower and part of the Seine River. 

A few other viewpoints not to miss out on in Paris

Several other places are perfect for getting a panoramic view of Paris. Some are free, others not, but all are worth it if you are looking to enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the City of Lights:
