Royal Escape: Discover the Musical Gardens and Grandes Eaux Musicales of Versailles

Located just a short distance from Paris, the Château de Versailles is a must-see getaway for guests of the Hôtel Auteuil Tour Eiffel. Until October 31, visitors can immerse themselves in the majesty of Les Jardins Musicaux and Les Grandes Eaux Musicales, two events that illustrate the splendor of the French royal era and captivate all who discover them.

Les Jardins Musicaux: a symphony of senses

Every year, the Jardins Musicaux de Versailles offer a unique experience where Baroque music fills the paths and groves of the estate. These events are held on Tuesdays and Fridays, allowing visitors to stroll through the royal gardens, enlivened by arias by Lully, Charpentier, and other composers of the period. As they stroll, guests can admire the many magnificently ornamented sculptures and fountains, whose jets of water dance to the rhythm of the melodies, offering a spectacle as harmonious as it is visually impressive. These musical walks are an ideal way to discover the artistic wealth and hydraulic ingenuity of the Grand Siècle.

Les Grandes Eaux Musicales: A Water and Sound Show

Until October 31, 2024, enjoy the Grandes Eaux Musicales in the gardens and groves opened for the occasion, a tradition that dates back to the time of the Sun King. This show combines the art of classical compositions with the spectacular engineering of 17th-century fountains. Visitors will marvel at the precision with which water and music align to create tableaux vivants, reflecting the luxury and decadence of Louis XIV's court. This is a rare opportunity to see the technologies of the past fused with art to evoke the historic grandeur of Versailles. Each performance is a masterly demonstration of the French genius for spectacle and entertainment.
