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.

Awesome smaller 'privacy' palace. It's of the Versailles grounds, so remember to keep your museum or palace pass in an easy to find location if your coming from that direction. The Chateau is 'humble' in that everything isn't guilded. However being the smaller home doesn't mean it's not very impressive. This is a great shorter visit and generally a lot fewer crowds than the full Versailles palace.
A nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. Use kidding. Historic palace on beautiful grounds. Well worth visiting while at Versailles.
Absolutely gorgeous! Not busy when I went so I could peacefully wonder around. Highly recommend.
The Grand Trianon is a part of the Versailles State in Versailles, France. the whole state is huge, I recommend dedicating at least 6 hours if you plan to explore the whole place. the Grand Trianon is a 40 minute walk through the Garden from the Palace. There is a small train that goes around the Grand, Petite Trianon, and the Grand Canal, you can hop on and off between these 3 places for 8 Euros and Euro 4.30 each if you are only doing 1 leg. The Grand Trianon will transport you back in time , it's beautiful and the garden is meticulously done. A shirt walk from the Petite Trianon is the Queen's Hamlet used to be called the English Garden of Mary Antoinette.
Nice place to visit. Food and drink so expensive. The ride so expensive. No information where to go, every thing cost money but bad services.
