A night out of time and history
Since 1980, the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte proposes to the visitors a dreamlike and unique experience: the candlelit visit of the château and its gardens! Every Saturday from May 20 to September 30, 2023, rediscover the 33 hectares of formal gardens created by André Le Nôtre, the marvellous architecture of Louis Le Vau and Charles Le Brun’s sumptuous paintings by the flickering lights of 2 000 candles…*
First château to propose candlelit visits, Vaux-le-Vicomte invites you to a night out of time and history, to recapture the magic of the famous party of August 17, 1661.
* For safety reasons and to protect the monument, the natural lightening is sometimes recreated with artificial candles inside the château.
