Every night, on the hour, the tower is illuminated with golden lights and sparkles for five minutes as the Eiffel Tower's beam illuminates the city. The finest view of the light spectacle is from Place du Trocadero. The location is near where the tower stands on the Champ de Mars.

The illumination was added to the tower in 1986 by French president François Mitterrand. He decided that the tower should be illuminated each night at midnight so as "to show the world that love for art can never be defeated." The tower has been illuminated every night since then except when it is closed for maintenance or an event.

In 2001, President Jacques Chirac announced that the tower would no longer be illuminated every night at midnight but instead on selected evenings during the year when this does not conflict with events at the tower. This decision was made in order to save money and because some people find the light pollution from such an extensive area of Paris disturbing. However, the tower is still always lighted during the day when its exhibitions are on display.

An electric light has been installed on the tower itself. It consists of an aluminum mast fixed to the side of the building with wires running up to a generator housed in the roof. The generator uses electricity which is transmitted into the lamp posts located around the base of the tower.

Why does the Eiffel Tower sparkle every night?

The Tower also symbolizes the enchantment of light. Every evening, it shines with light and inspires dreams. Every night, 20,000 lightbulbs are utilized to make the Eiffel Tower glitter for five minutes on the hour! To save electricity, the lights were turned out at 1:00 a.m. following the last glitter display.

In 1889, when it was first built, the Eiffel Tower was completely illuminated by electricity. But over time, this system became obsolete and was replaced by oil lamps which burned throughout the night. In 1919, during renovations, all the oil lamps were removed from the tower and never put back in their original locations. Today, the tower is once again fully electrified and operates according to a programmed schedule to ensure that the lights are on and sparkling every night from the top of the Tower all the way down to the bottom.

The lighting ceremony takes place even if it's cloudy or not sunny outside.

During its first year, 1895, the Eiffel Tower was not illuminated; instead, it was painted red, white, and blue for the Paris World's Fair.

In 1998, President Jacques Chirac inaugurated France's first national monument, L'Isle du Diable (Devil's Island). The island's original name was Invalides but it was changed in 1777 to honor Louis XIV's army commander, General Jean Baptiste François de Gaston, Duke of Orléans.

The Eiffel Tower is one of the many monuments that stands today on the island, along with a memorial to the victims of the Titanic disaster and their descendants.
