Musical Gardens 2022


As the seasons go by, to the rhythm of baroque music (Lully, Handel, Charpentier, Campra, Cavalli...), stroll through the remarkable French gardens of Château de Versailles!

At the turn of a flowerbed, in a grove exceptionally open to the public, you will come across a thousand statues, sometimes hidden masterpieces or topiaries (sculpted plants) hand-cut by the art gardeners of the Château de Versailles.
The Bosquet du Théâtre d'Eau, the Bassin du Miroir and the Bassin de Neptune will offer you, thanks to modern techniques, magnificent compositions of water jets and aquatic cascades throughout the day.

The Musical Gardens, the must-see visit of the Gardens of the Palace of Versailles!


The Bosquet du Théâtre d'Eau will offer you its most beautiful fountain-sculptures in action and the Bassin du Miroir a show of water games, using modern techniques, set to the rhythm of Handel or Blamont. The Bassin de Neptune, the largest pool in the gardens of the Château de Versailles, is decorated every quarter of an hour with magnificent compositions of water jets, for a baroque and virtuoso choreography of sprays and waterfalls.
