Paris' Eiffel Tower has been transformed into a winter wonderland, all decked out for the holidays with Christmas trees and giant penguins.
The first floor terrace of the 324-metre-high monument opened its doors to tourists on Friday for the holiday season.
Visitors are welcomed by a family of shiny penguin sculptures and a replica of the Eiffel Tower with silver mirrors, surrounded by a "forest" with sparkling pine trees and ice floes.
One of France's most visited monuments, the Eiffel Tower gets about seven million visitors a year.
The light decorations can be viewed until February 18.
