About this activity
Visit: Le Jardin de Versailles, Place D'armes A l'Ouest du Château de Versailles, 78000, Versailles France

After redeeming your voucher at the entrance of the Gardens of Versailles, head off to explore this must-see Versailles attraction independently and immerse yourself in France’s rich history. Located just west of the fantastic Palace of Versailles, the Gardens of Versailles cover 1,977 acres (800 hectares) of land, landscaped beautifully across 13 different groves. Take your time and explore the garden’s groves, where the flowers, labyrinths, sculptures and fountains will delight your senses.

Originally designed by the famous 17th-century French landscape architect, André Le Nôtre, the Gardens of Versailles have remained quintessentially French in style. Since his original creation, thousands more trees, flowers and shrubs have been planted amid ornate statues and, of course, the incredible Versailles fountains.

Your independent Gardens of Versailles ticket includes a Versailles musical fountain show (Grandes Eaux Musicales), which takes place in the morning (11am-12pm) and afternoon (3:30pm-5pm) on Saturdays and Sundays, and takes place in the morning (11am-12pm) and afternoon (2:30pm) selected Tuesdays throughout the summer. During the show, a multitude of jets spray water up to 27 feet (8 meters) in the air in sequence with the Baroque music of Jean-Baptiste Lully, a French composer who served the court of Louis XIV. The display finishes at the Bassin de Neptune, often considered the palace’s finest fountain.

Please note: On Saturdays from June 21 - September 13, the gardens will close at 5:30pm (last entry at 5:20pm)

B-E-A-utiful!! My favorite part of the Paris trip. Give yourself time to walk around even when the water show isn't on. Only thing I wish I had know about was the Golf Cart rentals, it is such a large place it would have helped to see everything.
