the Musical fountains shows, the musical gardens and the royal serenade

From the end of March to the end of October, on most Tuesdays, Fridays and week ends.

On Musical Gardens days, visitors are invited to explore and discover groves that are not usually open to the public with baroque music playing in the background.

On Musical Fountains shows days, baroque melodies are complemented by the dancing waters of the fountains.

Musical Fountains Show

From June to September on Saturdays.

During the Fountains Night Show, the gardens of Louis XIV offer an astonishing visit with sound and visual effects as night falls. Pools and groves are orchestrated and sublimed, coming to life before the visitor's eyes with fountains and lights and culminating with a dazzling firework display.

Just before the Fountains Night Show visitors can attend the Royal Serenada staged by the Dance Company, a 40-minute show in the King's State Apartments.
