The Musical Fountains Show

From April 4th to November 1st 2020
Paying access from 9 am to 7 pm

Presentation

Every Saturday and Sunday from April 4th to November 1st 2020, and some exceptional dates (May 8th and 21st, July 14th 2020). 
Every Tuesday from May 19th to June 23th 2020, and Friday April 10th 2020.

During the Musical Fountains Show you can discover and enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the Château de Versailles gardens, of its groves exceptionally open to the public and of its fountains playing to the tune of period music.

The gardens were at the heart of King Louis XIV's attention and are world famous today. Already at the time of the King's reign, the Versailles groves were open air salons secluded at the heart of the wooded parts of the garden. The King and the court went there for a light meal, to listen to music or to dance. Decorated with fountains, vases and statues, these groves with their secret access bring fantasy and surprise within the Royal Garden.

These green bowers are now exceptionally accessible for you to discover. The talent of the 17th century fountain engineers and of their successors has always made the Musical Fountains Show an unforgettable and fairytale experience. The fountains play with multiple special effects and marble and metal gods, humans and animals seem to come to life for a few moments, for our greatest pleasure. When the fountains are playing, a ballet comes alive to enchant each and all. Your royal stroll will unfold to the tunes of the greatest baroque composers from Lully to Charpentier or Couperin.

For more than 350 years the success of the Musical Fountains Show has never waned. It is your turn to discover or rediscover them, with friends or family!

THE MUSIC OF THE MUSICAL FOUNTAINS SHOW

The Grandes Eaux de Versailles: thanks to the label of Château de Versailles Spectacles, discover the music which make the gardens and fountains of Versailles swing and which reverberates in the Royal Opera and the Royal Chapel.
