The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon to commemorate his victory against the Russians and Austrians at the Battle of Austerlitz. It is 50 meters tall and is built in a neoclassical style, decorated with allegorical images of France. Underneath the arches lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, who represents the lives lost in both World Wars.

The tunnel under the roundabout is not wheelchair-accessible, but you can be dropped off in a special parking bay on the roundabout itself. You can access the museum room via an elevator, but there are 3 steps up to the elevator. The rooftop terrace is accessible via an elevator, but the surface of the terrace has some shallow steps.
