Les Grandes Eaux Musicales" at the Château de Versailles

Fantastic and dazzling, "Les Grandes Eaux Musicales" at the Château de Versailles amazes the public every summer. If you plan to spend a day exploring this majestic castle, don't forget to take the time to attend this show that has been intoxicating visitors for 350 years!

Every Saturday and Sunday from April 6 to October 27, 2019, and every Tuesday from May 21 to June 25, 2019, the fountains will dance in the sky of the gardens of the Château de Versailles, to the delight of visitors!

If the Château de Versailles is an architectural jewel, its gardens are not to be outdone. Indeed, at the time of Louis XIV, these small corners of royal paradise held all the attention of the Sun King. There were outdoor lounges and parties where music and dancing were organized. The show "Les Grandes Eaux Musicales" perfectly reproduces the splendid and majestic atmosphere of the reign of Louis XIV.

After a visit to the Château de Versailles, a must-see visit to the Hall of Mirrors and a bucolic break in the Queen's hamlet, you will join the Royal Garden, usually closed to the public. These green settings will come alive to the rhythm of enchanting baroque melodies. The fountains multiply the effects with a unique staging. You will see, it is a real ballet of waters that will be performed before your eyes. The magic is multiplied tenfold thanks to the architecture of the fountains, composed of gods, men and animals in metal or marble that come to life under the jets.

"Les Grandes Eaux Musicales" take place all day long. However, some events are held every 15 minutes, others at certain times of the day. Remember to ask for the times at the entrance to the Château de Versailles.

Each year, the show "Les Grandes Eaux Musicales" attracts more than 12,000 visitors from all over the world. It's your turn to let yourself be charmed by this exceptional production!
