The Eiffel Tower was built in Paris from 1887 to 1889. The reasons for the construction were the World Fair in 1889 and the 100-year Jubilee of the French Revolution. According to an agreement between Gustave Eiffel, the City of Paris and the French State, the tower should only stand for twenty years. For the opening of the tower a special edition of the newspaper “Le Figaro” was printed, and for this reason a small printing-house was installed in the tower.
At the beginning the tower was very controversial: it was one of the first constructions made completely out of steel, and many people considered it to be unsafe. They were afraid that the tower could fall over. The sight of the tower also disturbed many people; the French author Guy de Maupassant described the tower as a “heap of metal screwed together”. This description gives a hint about the building material for the tower: 6,300 tons of iron (distributed among 18,000 various iron parts) and 2.5 million rivets. The steel construction has an overall weight of about 7,500 tons. From 1889 to 1916 the tower was 300.5 metres high, but from 1916 the tower was also used as an aerial mast, which raised the height to about 320 m. On the tower there are three platforms at heights of 57 m, 115 m, and 274 m.
