From the beginning of his reign, Louis XIV gave particular importance to entertainment and festivities, which added to the prestige of his kingdom. He wanted the whole of Europe to recognise the magnificence of the festivities he presented at his court.
Today, the Palace of Versailles continues this tradition and invites you to enjoy unforgettable moments at some incredible events:
- On Tuesdays and weekends between March and October discover the hidden secrets of the groves of Le Nôtre's gardens at the Musical Fountains Show.
- On Saturday evenings from 17 June to 16 September 2017 the magic comes to life at the Night Fountains Show. Don't miss the fireworks at the end of the evening!
- Will you attend the Fêtes Galantes, the famous costume ball held in the Hall of Mirrors? Perhaps our paths may cross!
On Tuesdays and Fridays from the end of March to the end of October, attend the Musical Gardens and enjoy the gardens of Le Nôtre through an exceptional musical walk.
At the end of June and during the month of July, you can watch breathtaking pyrotechnic shows. Do not miss Louis XIV, the king of fire and Handel: music of royal fireworks
