 Puzzles of Famous Buildings and Landmarks

3D Puzzles of Paris

Who doesn’t love Paris? We can all agree that the city is a dream to behold. Few cities in the world have so many iconic structures. Featured in books, movies, operas, paintings, and all art forms, these are immediately recognizable. Though there are several 3D puzzles of Paris, we have selected one of the city’s skyline. Made entirely in premium paper and foam board, this beauty includes the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre Museum with the crystal pyramid, Arch de Triomphe, and Champs Elysees. It is for travelers as young as 8 years old. When assembling it, you will be back in Paris!


Eiffel Tower

We love our Ravensburger 3D puzzle of the Eiffel Tower of 216 pieces. This premium plastic model reproduces the tower to the utmost detail. You can also get this Ravensburger 3D puzzle with LED lights. The 18.5 inches tall (47 cm) model comes with everything you need to assemble it, except the batteries. You can set it to a permanent white or to change colors.

Since we like foam and paper models, we have the Cubicfun 3D puzzle Eiffel Tower collection. Both models are sturdy and will last a lifetime. You don’t need any tools or glue to assemble your models. Punch out the 84 pieces and follow the instructions. Both models are 30.7 inches (78 cm) tall. The model with LED lights is a beautiful lamp.

The Wrebbit 3D puzzle Eiffel Tower is a much bigger and complex model. We are talking about an 816 piece model. Since lasers cut the pieces, these fit like a glove. This 40 inches (102cm) tall model is our biggest tower. Assembling it wasn’t easy, and that’s why we had so much fun. After all, that’s the whole point of puzzles: to relax and complete a challenge.

Thus, there are 3D puzzles of London for every kick and fancy. We began our collection with the Cubicfun city line 3D puzzle of London that features the city’s most recognizable icons like the Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and London Eye. We were staying with some friends in London and assembled it together one rainy afternoon. Since then, they are all 3D puzzle enthusiasts.
