Over 800 years old, the Château saw the greatest kings and princes and dukes come around. The historic monument has been a "family house" of the Kings of France, so did the Château de Rambouillet, the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye and the Palace of Versailles.
Turned imperial palace after the French Revolution, the Château de Fontainebleau has been refitted by Napoleon I and keeps, among others, the only Napoleon Throne Room still existing. It will be used by kings and emperors until the reign of Napoleon III and Eugénie!
Today, the Renaissance-style castle and its parks are highly coveted by tourists coming to admire the 1,5000 rooms thoroughly decorated and furnished in the palace, as well as the different exhibitions running. Entertainments and celebrations provided all year around allow to discover the palace in a new light.
In September, European Heritage Days allow us to enjoy this exceptional monument and its treasures.
