The Eiffel Tower was a steel structure located in Paris, France on Earth.

The Eiffel Tower was also visible from the office of the Federation President. In 2293 the president also had a miniature model of the tower in his office, next to his desk. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country; DS9: "Homefront", "Paradise Lost")

In 2342, the Café des Artistes offered a spectacular view of the landmark. (TNG: "We'll Always Have Paris")

The Eiffel Tower has never been mentioned in dialog, but it has appeared numerous times in establishing shots of Paris. In fact, the script of "Homefront" is the only Star Trek script to mention the Eiffel Tower in its stage directions. It was built in 1889, and has since become the symbol of France. It was designed by the Human Gustav Eiffel, who also designed the structural framework for the Statue of Liberty in New York City; coincidentally, the scene in ENT: "Storm Front, Part II" in which Hitler views the statue from a boat in New York Harbor was created by digitally altering footage taken at the Eiffel Tower when he visited conquered Paris in 1940.
The non-canon novel Trapped in Time mentions that the Eiffel Tower was destroyed during the Third World War.
