This impressive LEGO set reaches a height of 149 cm when built – making it a unique representation of the famous construction in the form of a brick building.
The set consists of 10,001 pieces that authentically recreate the mighty wrought iron tower – with a beautiful lattice structure, three observation platforms, greenery elements, elevators, an office at the top, and a transmitting tower and Tricolore flag on its top. The set can be divided into four parts, making it easy to build, move and play.
The Eiffel Tower was built from 1887 to 1889, being the most important part of the 1889 World’s Fair. Despite initial criticism about its appearance, it has become a global cultural icon and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.

Rok Žgalin Kobe, a LEGO designer, described the process of designing the new set:
We wanted to find the perfect LEGO interpretation for the engineering and architectural masterpiece that is the Eiffel Tower. We followed the design principles of the original tower as closely as the LEGO brick system allowed. As you build, you’ll discover interesting and innovative LEGO building techniques that reflect and bring the tower’s real-world architectural features to life. Once the construction is complete, it will be easier to realize how breathtaking it is to stand at the top and look at the rich history of Paris. This is the perfect set for both travel and architecture fans.
The LEGO Eiffel Tower set will be available from November 25, 2022 in LEGO brick-and-mortar stores and on LEGO.com/Eiffel for PLN 2,949.99.
