What to expect

Designed by the talented André Le Nôtre for Louis XIV, the gardens of the Palace of Versailles are still today, 350 years after their construction, among the finest in the world. These tickets give access not only to the Fountain of Neptune, the Fountain of Apollo, and the Mirror Fountain, but also to secret groves or those usually closed to the public.

This amazing stroll full of discoveries offers a journey into another era. A complete change of scene just 30 minutes from Paris.

Musical Gardens:
A stroll through groves open exceptionally to the public, with the sound of music from the greatest baroque composers, from Lully to Charpentier.

Musical Fountains show:
A magical itinerary where fountains play in groves to the sound of baroque music.

Anlage sehr schön
July 3rd 2023

Das online Ticket ist problemlos geliefert worden.
Das Personal im Garten war sehr freundlich.
Einige Ecken waren recht ungepflegt, ein maroder Zaun ist mit einfachen Handgriffen zu reparieren.
Was mich aber richtig, richtig gestört hat, es gibt keine Hinweistafeln in deutscher Sprache. Finde ich sehr schade und ich habe uns dann das Eintrittsgeld für das Schloss gespart.
