A trip to Paris isn’t complete without some pictures with the iconic Eiffel Tower. I just love how the Eiffel Tower can pop up between streets, offering the prettiest views. I rounded up 13 secret places to view the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The best Eiffel Tower Photo spots
1 – Trocadéro
I admit, it’s not so secret anymore but it’s the best place to get the Eiffel Tower views. I like finding unique angles of this square, especially since it is kinda difficult to shoot here in winter.
If you want no one in the photos, try heading here during sunrise! Plus, it’s the best place to watch the sun rise over Paris.
2 – Rue de l’Université
This quaint street is ideal for viewing the Eiffel Tower and taking some photos in a very popular instagram spot.
You’ll meet a dead end on Rue de l’Universite and Avenue de la Bourdonnais where the Eiffel Tower is in clear sight.
Tip: This street does offer parking so there may be cars in your photo!
Pro tip: Go there very early! It’s really a well known photo spot and there were more people than right in front of the Eiffel Tower. Crazy how famous these Instagram Spots are!
3 – Just find a quiet street nearby the Eiffel Tower for some great pictures
Yes, it’s actually that easy. Paris has stunning architecture and actually, you just need to find a quiet street with views of the Eiffel Tower to get some good pictures.
Just walk around Paris, and find your very own instagram spot!
4 – Rue St. Dominique
Not only is this street known for its shopping boutiques, but all along you’ll spot the Eiffel Tower peaking through the street. For navigation, search for ‚Le Recrutement‚.
5 – Pont Alexandre III
A beautiful bridge itself with some of the best views of the Eiffel Tower and L’Hôtel des Invalides.
Here, you will definitely have the chance to snap some pictures with the Eiffel Tower in the background. I love the golden ornaments that make this bridge a photo spot on its very own!
6 – Pont de l’Alma
You will find Pont de l’Alma nearby Pont Alexandre III. The views are very similar to be honest, but Pont Alexandre III can get very crowded.
If Pont Alexandre III gets too crowded, it’s a good place to take some photos though.
7 – Place de Mexico
I just love how the Eiffel Tower pops up between the beautiful French architecture.
I could never get tired of these typical Parisienne streets.
8 – Champ de Mars
For more quiet views of the Eiffel Tower, Champ de Mars is perfect! Especially during spring and summer a must in every Paris itinerary.
With quiet I mean: there are definitely less people than on the very, very popular instagram spots. It’s very touristy though and you will find people selling their little Eiffel Towers everywhere.
9 – Anywhere at the Seine River
Actually, it’s very easy to shoot a picture of the iconic Eiffel Tower at the Seine River.
There are various photo spots to get that shot of the Eiffel Tower.
10 – Avenue de New York
Not far away from Pont de Bir-Hakeim, you will find Avenue de New York. Located directly at the Seine river, you will have the chance to capture some stunning views of the Eiffel Tower.
11 – Rue Surcouf
A rather unknown place nearby „Le Recrutement“, just walk the street towards the Eiffel Tower and you will find the next photo spot.
12 – Avenue de Camoëns
You’ll most likely find other bloggers taking photos at this exact spot. Avenue de Camoëns is a quiet street just besides Trocadero that offers some of the bests views of the Eiffel Tower surrounded by stunning French architecture!
13 – Pont de Bir-Hakeim
Pont de Bir-Hakeim is a perfect place to capture the Eiffel Tower. I love how the bridge frames the Eiffel Tower in the background! A must area for Eiffel Tower photo spots.
