We went there at the end of the day to discover the new Christmas decorations and thehe monumental projection on the facade of the castle garden side.
It's every visit, an enchantment to discover and rediscover the castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte and its sumptuous French garden. It's definitely our favorite castle around Paris.. A festive, united and luminous program this winter in Vaux!
The 360° view from the dome is extraordinary.. There we find out the French gardens of André le Nôtre to the statue of Hercules, the estate and its foreststhe outbuildings on either side of the castle, the ponds, the great canalthe old stables...
A monumental projection on the facade of the castle
Every night, at dusk.The spectator will attend the projection of animated images retracing the highlights of the history of Vaux-le-Vicomte! Each session lasts about 8 minutes. The images fit perfectly with the façade and sublimate all the architectural details that make it up. A very beautiful sound and light!
