On Saturdays during the summer months, Château de Versailles lets guests enjoy a spectacular Night Fountains Show with a grande finale of sparkling fireworks. It is a show not to be missed if you visit Château de Versailles. I have earlier written about the Fountains Show at Château de Versailles which is also an event to be experienced during the daytime. If you plan to stay at the castle for a day you can easily combine it with this evening show. After all, there is nothing more than magical to wander around in the beautiful garden of the castle while the sun is slowly setting.

From 20h30 the fountains are active with water sprouting to baroque music in the background. And there is a light show making it look even more enchanting. But there is even more to come! Before the magical evening comes to an end people gather around the Latonas fountain after 22h00 to grab a good spot. This is the best place to have a great overview of the majestic fireworks that lights up the sky in different colours. You’ll be enjoying this spectacular firework show from 22h50 and lasts until 23h05.

Practical tips:

The Night Fountains Show at Château de Versailles begins at 20h30 and ends at 23h05 (fireworks between 22h50-23h05). There are two different types of tickets, standard and prestige. A standard ticket gives you access to the gardens whereas the prestige ticket lets you enter already at 19h45, includes a dedicated car park and a glass of champagne to add some bubbles to the festive evening. Most importantly, no matter what ticket you opt to buy I truly recommend you to buy it online. That way you will skip the long lines at the ticket desks. To plan your evening and make sure you won’t miss any of the fountains do have a look at this map over the gardens. I highly advise you to download it in advance as it also includes useful information about the evening.
