Masterpiece from the 17th century by architect Le Vau, painter-decorator Le Brun, and gardener Le Nôtre, the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte reopens the estate on Thursday May 21, 2020 for the new summer season. The reopening has been completed gradually: first sole the gardens of the estate were open, then the château opened on June 13, 2020. And now, the estate and the château are open from Wednesday to Sunday, and even on public holidays, from July 15 to August 31, 2020!
The château offers a sound and immersive tour daily so that you can visit the monument as if you were back in the time of Nicolas Fouquet. This new 3D sound tour experience takes us to the Grand Siècle. The adult and young tours are available for free to all visitors. Let yourselves be carried by the history of France for a 90-minute tour.
In the gardens, take part in a treasure hunt! Three times a day, a golden squirrel and a hazelnut are hidden in the gardens of Vaux-le-Vicomte. The first child to find it wins a surprise. The estate also has two treasure hunts depending on the age of children. On weekends and public holidays, your admission ticket gives you way to make small wooden boats sail on the pools of the estate.
Here are ideas of what is to come this year:
