You Can Now Rollerblade on Paris' Montparnasse Tower (Don't Look Down!)

Updated: 26 October 2017
A pop-up rink on the highest rooftop in Paris (56 floors) now lets you whizz around on roller skates, soaking up the spectacular 360-degree views over one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

From October 20 to November 5, you can put your skates on and rollerblade around the highest rooftop in Paris, on the terrace of the Panoramic Observation Floor at the top of the Montparnasse Tower.

It takes just 38 seconds – in Europe’s fastest elevator – to reach the 56th floor, where you can marvel at the most incredible views of Paris while zipping around at supersonic speed.

The pop-up only lasts two weeks however, so be quick to book a ticket while you can. The best time to visit is at sunset, when the City of Lights is illuminated and the Eiffel Tower is glittering on the hour.

The rollerskating track on the rooftop will be available free of charge to all visitors who purchase a ticket to visit to the observatory, famous for its breathtaking bird’s-eye views. An adult ticket for the observatory costs €17, with reduced tariffs available. There’s also a great value Day & Night Ticket on offer, valid for two visits within 48 hours, priced at €23 for adults.

As of March 2017, it has been ranked as the 14th tallest building in the European Union, a towering skyscraper boasting 210 metres (689 feet). Its view covers an epic radius of 40 kilometres (25 miles), stretching so far that you can even see planes taking off from the distant Paris’ Orly Airport.

No need to worry about bringing your own skates, as the pop-up will loan skates and roller blades free of charge, and there’s hot chocolate on offer at the nearby café for when you’ve finished.
