Presenting the LEGO® Architecture interpretation of one of the most iconic landmarks ever constructed – The Eiffel Tower! Designed and built by French entrepreneur, Gustave Eiffel, the original 324-meter-tall masterpiece of wrought iron engineering formed the grand entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, held in Paris to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. During construction, the 18,038 wrought iron elements making up the tower’s lattice structure were bolted together at Eiffel’s factory on the outskirts of Paris, before being transported to the site, hoisted into place by steam-powered cranes operating from the elevator shafts, and assembled using no less than 2.5 million individual rivets. The resulting structure was extremely rigid and over the years has withstood storms, floods and everything else mother nature has thrown at it. Today, The Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most popular landmarks, attracting millions of curious visitors from around the world each year. With this exceptional model, you can now build your very own 321-piece Eiffel Tower in LEGO brick form and display it in your home, office or wherever you like!

- December 28th, 2015Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Eiffel TowerI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is only my second Architecture build, the first being Big Ben, I was extremely pleased with this build! I expected it perhaps to be as thin and as small as Big Ben, but turned out to be completely the opposite. It's taller and 'chunkier'. You also have a choice of having the name plate in English or French, I personally put the English title at the front and French at the back. The model itself is nice to look at and the colour of it works too, in sense of 'play' it is clearly a model for display purposes as this theme is however, I guess it could be used as a background scene for a bigger set? (Picture shows Big Ben for size comparison)Play Experience2.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45The Eiffel Tower
- June 10th, 2017Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great landmark!I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfBeing my second Lego of this great Architecture collection, I enjoyed it very much. The instructions were clear and I was excited about building this amazing tower. The only areas I'd suggest to improve are the radio antenna (perhaps add an extra thinner antenna), the colour of the bricks (they are too grey whereas the real tower is made of puddling iron and not steel) and the cross sections to make it look more like the real one. Overall it was quite enjoyable, the four pillars, the iron platforms and the four arches are well made. It kept me busy for a while. Looking forward to my next set!Play Experience4.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 2 hrs 10 minsBuilding Experience: Novice LEGO builderWas this helpful?55The Eiffel Tower

- June 29th, 2016Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Lovely little buildI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfSince I started working in a toy shop i've been obsessed with lego but could never bring myself to spend lots of money on one set. When I discovered the Architecture theme I was so excited as I knew they'd make a great addition to the shelves in my room. I decided to get this one as my first Architecture set and it looks so cute!! Took me about an hour and was pretty simple to construct. I would say it's not the most stable thing at the end so be careful when moving it around as mine did fall apart but once it's put on display it looks lovely. It's a great size and looks really cool, will definitely be purchasing more architecture lego!Play Experience1.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45The Eiffel Tower
