The Grand Apartments constitute, along with the Hall of Mirrors, the most important ceremonial spaces of the Palace of Versailles. These spaces prove and symbolize Louis XIV’s absolute power as well as the splendour of the receptions that were held. You will be dazzled by the infinitely rich decor of the 7 living rooms, like the sumptuous Apollo Salon, dedicated to the Sun God whom the King identified with. In the Queen’s Grand Apartment, you will relive the moment when Marie-Antoinette ran away to escape the rioters in 1789. You will also have your breath taken away by the 73 meter long and 12 meter high Hall of Mirrors designed by Mansart. Illuminated by 17 windows and decorated with 357 mirrors, whose manufacture was a veritable technical feat, the Hall of Mirrors was the backdrop of all the great celebrations of the Court.
The tickets include a self-visit of the King’s and Queen’s State Appartments and of the Hall of Mirrors.
