European Heritage Days



Opening of the South Wing

On 14 and 15 September 2013, the South Wing of the Palace of Versailles will exceptionally be open to visitors. For the 30th European Heritage Days, you can discover these unique rooms imagined by Louis-Philippe and where Napoleon holds a place of honour.

La galerie des BataillesThe Gallery of Battles

The South Wing: a spectacular, little-known gem

In celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of European Heritage Days, the Palace of Versailles invites you to take a novel visit. On this occasion, open the doors of the South Wing, which far too often remain closed.

Beyond the Gallery of Battles, this wing is a spectacular, little-known gem. Louis XIV is practically nowhere to be found, but Napoleon holds a place of honour. Here, Louis-Philippe gathered masterpieces telling the history of France. From the vestibule of the Provence staircase to the diaphanous glassworks of the South Wing Attic, this visit promises you many moments of amazement.

Practical information

14 and 15 September 2013, from 9 am to 6.30 pm (last admission at 5 pm)

Free access to the South Wing at 4 rue de l'Indépendance Américaine at Versailles

NB: rates for other areas of the Palace and the Gardens remain unchanged

The opening of the South Wing is posible thanks to the support of Renault Trucks Defense
