About The Grand Trianon, Versailles
The Grand Trianon is considered to be the most beautiful of all the buildings in Versaille. The pavilion here was first made of porcelain (1670), which upon deterioration was changed to marble(1708). It’s second form was a favourite residence of the French king and his secret wife, and over the years it hosted other royalty too – the Grand Dauphin, the Duchess of Burgundy, the Dowager Duchess of Orleans and member of her family, the Duchess of Bourbon, Peter the Great and of course, Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. Heck, Even Napoleon and his wife stayed here for a bit. It was within these halls that the Treaty of Trianon was signed in 1920, and Hungary left with less than a third it’s land from pre-WWI.
It’s one of the greatest examples of French Baroque architecture in the world, but visitors are also deeply struck by it’s geometric French Gardens.

Worth a visit if it's included in the palace ticket anyways. I recommend walking through the gardens to find it. It doesn't open till 12.00 but doesn't have nearly as long a queue as the main palace. The actual exhibition doesn't have an audio guide and the plaques are only in French but it's still interesting. Once through, you'll come out in to more gardens which are pleasant to stroll through. Unfortunately Marie Antionettes' House was unreachable due to gardening work but I'm sure it's great to see. There's other buildings in the area and it is a nice walk. Not bad overall but I'm happy I didn't pay any extra for it.
Fast museum to walk through. Interesting layout and beautiful detail. Garden as impressive. Still had flowers during the fall.
A nice part of Versailles- could have been nicer if more maintenance could be done. Beware of the rude fat lady who is at the exit- if you enter from the exit by mistake she would yell at you at the top of her voice "Out! Out! You out!" without any explanation which could be kinda unpleasant.
Nice to visit but... facilities not up to par. Insufficient garden path signage and few toilets.. they could do much better.. Plenty of room for improvement.
A little bit of a hike from the main palace, about 15 minutes, but connected through the gardens, with a cafe along the way, this is a must see. It is also accessable on its own but not sure why you would do one without the other. It might be a good idea to start here and avoid the long line at the main entrance to the palace of Versaille and you can come in through the back
