Winter at Versailles

Winter is a wonderful time to visit Versailles. From October 22nd to January 7th, 2018 the Chateau presents Voyage d’Hiver, a contemporary art installation and discovery trail through the Groves, one of the largest open-air sculpture museums in the world. Contemporary artworks will sit next to those commissioned by Louis XIV. Visitors move from one grove to the next with increasing emotional intensity, which plays upon the historic or mythological significance of each individual space. Sculpture, sound installation, painting, drapery, reflection, oxidization, and glaciations are just a few of the techniques employed: metamorphosing a stroll into a personal experience, allowing visitors to perceive nature’s transformation from the glory of autumn to the starkness of winter.
