The Eiffel tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall and the tallest structure in Paris.

Eiffel tower base is square, measuring 125 metres (410 ft) on each side.
The puddled iron (wrought iron) of the Eiffel Tower weighs 7,300 tons, and the addition of lifts, shops and antennae have brought the total weight to approximately 10,100 tons.
A cubic box surrounding the tower (324 m x 125 m x 125 m) would contain 6,200 tons of air, weighing almost as much as the iron itself.
Gustave Eiffel engraved on the tower the names of 72 French scientists, engineers and mathematicians in recognition of their contributions to the building of the tower.

Eiffel tower

An episode of The Real Ghostbusters entitled ‘The Ghostbusters in Paris’ had the tower become haunted, causing a French government official to go to New York and enlist the help of the Ghostbusters. They later realize that Eiffel developed the tower to trap ghosts, making the Eiffel Tower the world’s largest ‘ghost containment unit’. By story’s end, the ghosts were transmitted to the Ghostbuster’s Primary Containment Unit back in New York, essentially de-haunting the Tower.
