"I ought to be jealous of the tower. She is more famous than I am."
–Gustave Eiffel
Wikipedia has a page called:

The Eiffel Tower is a Modern Era Wonder in Civilization VI. It must be built on flat land adjacent to the City Center.

  • Effects:
    • All tiles in the owner's territory get +2 Appeal. (Affects only tiles that are located within 3 hexes of a City Center.)


The Eiffel Tower's bonus is immensely useful to players who are aiming for a Culture Victory. Roosevelt's America can greatly benefit from building this Wonder, which will further augment the Appeal bonus that his territory receives from National Parks. In addition, a civilization with many cities near the coast can build the Eiffel Tower to increase the Tourism6 Tourism and Civ6Gold Gold output of its Seaside Resorts, especially if the civilization also manages to build Cristo Redentor.

The Eiffel Tower is also invaluable to Australia, whose Campuses, Commercial Hubs, Holy Sites, and Theater Squares all become more productive when placed on tiles with Charming or Breathtaking Appeal. The Australians should make every effort to build it no matter which kind of victory they're pursuing.

Civilopedia entry Edit

Named after Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, whose company built the gigantic steel tower to serve as the main entrance for the 1889 Exposition Universelle (world’s fair) in Paris, the Eiffel Tower has come to symbolize the “City of Lights.” (And as garishly illuminated as the tower is at night, this seems fitting.) It was the tallest structure in the world at the time it opened to awestruck crowds, but it was also the subject of considerable controversy and criticism from self-appointed arbitrators of culture. Before it was even built a 300-member committee made up of some of the most prominent French engineers and artists dispatched a petition to the Minister of Works that opened: “We, writers, painters, sculptors, architects and passionate devotees of the hitherto untouched beauty of Paris, protest with all our strength, with all our indignation in the name of slighted French taste, against the erection … of this useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower.” Many were also upset that it was going to cost French taxpayers a million dollars – a not inconsiderable sum at the time. Luckily for the Parisian Tourism Board, the protests were ignored and up the Eiffel Tower went.
