About Versailles Gardens Ticket: Night Fountains Show
Experience the Versailles Gardens (Jardins de Versailles) at night, when they are transformed by music and fountain displays. These grand performances are reminiscent of the many festivities organized by Louis XIV, who reigned from 1643 to 1715. Guided by the sound of Baroque music, use your independent ticket to the Versailles Gardens to discover the illuminated groves and the glorious fireworks display.
During the summer months, the Gardens of Versailles become even more special when the gates open for the spectacular Night Fountain Show. When the sun sets, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed gardens transform into a land of astonishing sights and sounds. The fountains are lit by 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 beautiful gardens to the best area to watch the show. Discover a world of colorfully illuminated groves and dancing fountains throughout the gardens, which are taken over by thousands of lights and incredible installations.
For approximately two hours, the Tapis Vert, a long grass carpet, is lit up by a fireworks display, 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.
You are free to bring a picnic to enjoy while watching the spectacular Night Fountain Show.
