Emile Nouguier and Maurice Koechlin, the two chief engineers in Eiffel's company, had the idea for a very tall tower in June 1884. It was to be designed like a large pylon with four columns of lattice work girders, separated at the base and coming together at the top, and joined to each other by more metal girders at regular intervals.
The Eiffel Tower constructed from 1887 to 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World's Fair, it was initially criticised by some of France's leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but it has become a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognisable structures in the world. The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world.

The tower has three levels for visitors, with restaurants on the first two levels. Upper platform of top level is 276 m above the ground – the highest observation deck open to the public in the European Union. The climb from ground level to the first level and the first level to the second is over 300 steps each. A lift is usually used to reach top level.
