Highlights

  • Exclusive after-hours access
  • Instant Confirmation
  • See the sights illuminated at night
During the summer months, the Gardens of Versailles become even more special when the gates open for a night fountain show. When the sun sets, the fountains inside the UNESCO World Heritage-listed gardens transforms with lights and pyrotechnics that are synchronized with classical music from a Baroque-style orchestra.

After redeeming your ticket voucher at the entrance of the Gardens of Versailles, you’ll be directed through the gardens to the best area to watch the show. For approximately 15 minutes at the end of your evening in the gardens, the Tapis Vert, a long grass carpet, is lit up by a fireworks display. This is accompanied by the French Baroque music of German conductor and violinist Reinhard Goebel and his orchestra, the Musica Antiqua Köln.When the fireworks display has ended, you will be guided back to the entrance of the Gardens of Versailles.

Upgrade: Fountain Night Show + Serenade:
To complete your evening, arrive early and head inside the Palace of Versailles to see a Baroque dance show. Baroque musicians and dancers – all wearing traditional, period costumes – guide you on a musical journey through the State Apartments in the Palace. Admire the fabulous Hall of Mirrors while watching typical Baroque dances such as the Sarabande, Menuet, and Chacrone from a group of musicians and dancers from La Compagnie de Danse de l'Eventail.
