The Musical Gardens Show



As the seasons go by, to the rhythm of baroque music (Lully, Handel, Charpentier, Campra, Cavalli…), stroll through the remarkable French gardens of Château de Versailles !


At the turn of a flowerbed, in a grove exceptionally open to the public from 9am to 7pm*, you will come across a thousand statues, sometimes hidden masterpieces or topiaries (sculpted plants) hand carved by Château de Versailles’s gardeners.


Like musical climaxes to your walk with family or friends, the Water Theater Grove, the Mirror Pool and the Neptune Pool will offer you magnificent water jet and waterfall compositions using modern techniques throughout the day.


The Musical Gardens Show, the must-see visit to the Gardens of Château de Versailles !


* except June 28th, July 30th, August 1st, 6th, 8th and October 29th, 30th, 31st = end 5:30pm
