- Even for locals, the Montparnasse tower offers a fairytale view of the city. It is accessible thanks to Europe's fastest elevator that whisks you to the top in just 38 seconds. From here, 209 meters (685 feet) up, or from the bar/restaurant on the 56th floor, the panorama extends for miles. Situated above Montparnasse train station, which serves the west of France, the tower is home to offices and businesses. Just by the restaurant is an exhibition that traces the history of Paris since 1858.
