Description

Every Saturday at nightfall throughout the summer, the gardens and groves of the Palace of Versailles come to life. After the Royal Serenade, a musical stroll through the King's apartments and the Hall of Mirrors, wander among the paths of the palace gardens. Explore the  groves, then enjoy the play of fountains and water features with enchanting lighting effects and music.

Children and adults will be thrilled at the sight of the Colonnade Grove illuminated by fluorescent green lasers, the Encelade grove with its misty atmosphere, and the Salle de Bal grove, with cascades that reflect flames. The Tapis Vert (a vast expanse of lawn) 'bursts into jets of flames'. The evening ends with a fireworks display, magnificently orchestrated with music from the time of Louis XIV, in front of the Grand Canal.

Château de Versailles

Together with its gardens, the Château de Versailles is one of the most famous monuments of world heritage. The buildings trace the architectural style of the 17th and 18th centuries and comprise: the Royal Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, the Chapel, the Royal Opera and the Museum of the History of France. The Park is decorated with statues, fountains, water parterres and outstanding buildings such as the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon, the Temple de l'Amour and the Hamlet of Queen Marie-Antoinette. After the restitution of the royal gate and the complete restoration of the Petit Trianon, the Royal Opera opened its doors in 2009 after two years of renovation works: it now welcomes the public with an exceptional programme. Since October 2010, the King's table is once again in the antechamber of the Grand Couvert which has been fully restored and is now reopen to the public. It recreates the dinnertime atmosphere in which King Louis XIV's would eat in public with his family every night at 10pm with each dinner lasting 45 minutes! The Château de Versailles has a new welcome and information area for the public, where all entrance tickets have been grouped together (the 'billet château', one-day pass, and guided visits are sold here). This area is located in the first building (aile des Ministres sud) located on the ramp on the left after passing the main gate.
