The Fountains Night Show

To experience Versailles at night, take a stroll through the illuminated palace gardens as the fountains play and wonders unfold.

Every Saturday evening during summer, you’re invited to a fairy tale stroll through the magnificent gardens of the Palace of Versailles, as they put on a magical show for two and a half hours.

Groves and fountains are decorated with a thousand lights, surreal illuminations, and wonderful baubles. The Sun King's music follows you all along your stroll. At the end, a grand fireworks display is the crowning glory.

For a royal evening, the prestige ticket offers the possibility of coupling the Fountains Night Show with a privileged visit to the Grand Apartments at sunset with live performances by baroque artists. – © Thomas Garnier

From the Grand Perspective, you’ll be able to admire the elegantly lit statues, topiaries and pools. As you go further into the gardens, you’ll find the Green Carpet vibrating in the light of monumental torches and the Ballroom Grove where you can dance a few steps surrounded by thousands of candles.

At the Mirror Pool, modern water jets mingle and embrace to the lights of the Colonnade Grove, while the aerial effects of the Water Theatre sculpture fountains will astound you.

Many World Heritage sites are temporarily closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please check official websites for more information.
