"Paris in a ferris wheel" Jardin des Tuileries Tip by mariev
Jardin des Tuileries, Paris: 4 reviews and 5 photos
An original way to see Paris from above is the Jardin des Tuileries' ferris wheel.
Formerly situated Place de la Concorde (built there for the Y2K celebrations), the "Grande Roue de Paris" is now located in the Jardin des Tuileries, just beside the Rue de Rivoli.
Risen on a 21m X 25m platform, revolving on a 60m high axis, it's Europe's tallest ferris whell.
The 6 seats cabines provide an exceptional view on Paris. You can see the city from the Arche de la Defense to the Tour Eiffel and from jardin des Tuileries to the Sacré Coeur.
By night, the sight is especially impressive.
The wheel operates every day from 11am to 12 pm (but may be closed in case of heavy rain)
Price : 8€ adult, 5€ children
The ferris wheel is a seasonal thing and operates only during holidays (winter and summer), so depending on when you are comming, you may find it or not.
