The unique Royal Fireworks display at the Versailles Gardens takes place just five times a year.
Your ticket to the Royal Fireworks display allows you exclusive access to the Gardens of Versailles after-hours. Take a seat by the Grand Canal, one of the gardens’ many beautiful features created by landscape designer André Le Nôtre.
During the 1.5-hour Royal Fireworks display, experience a celebration of pyrotechnical art and classical music. Sit back and watch the fireworks while listening to Friedrich Handel's most famous pieces of music – ‘Water Music,’ which was famously performed in 1717 for King George I, and ‘Music for Royal Fireworks,’ which was composed in 1749 for the fireworks in London's Green Park for George II.
The extraordinary combination of fireworks and orchestral music against the backdrop of the Grand Canal aims to tell a story about the history of the Versailles Palace (Chateau de Versailles). As the show progresses, watch the Versailles Grand Canal become a magical sight.
