The King’s morning ritual

With the support of the Palace of Versailles

Spend a morning at the Palace of Versailles

The sun is rising up on Versailles; king Louis XIV awakens. Follow along to his footsteps and listen to the story of his ceremonial morning, an insight into the court of the Sun King. Visit the King’s room at sunrise, just like the courtiers who attended the King’s awakening. Wander around the royal apartment’s parlours and discover the many art pieces that adorn the Palace.
You will explore the most prestigious rooms in the Palace, as you’ve never seen them before: the King’s room, the Royal Apartments, the world renowned Hall of Mirrors, and the newly renovated Royal Chapel, resonating with the sounds of the organ.
