Castle of Fontainebleau

With over 1500 rooms at the heart of 130 acres of parkland and gardens, Fontainebleau is the only royal and imperial château to have been continuously inhabited for seven centuries. A visit to Fontainebleau opens up an unparalleled view of French history, art history and architecture.*

Castle of Fontainebleau

Kings and queens, emperors and empresses have all striven to make their own improvements to the château built around the original keep. The estate quickly became a huge palace in which many momentous historical events have been played out.

The château and its gardens were named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1981.

Opening hours

The château is open every day except for Tuesdays, 1 January, 1 May and 25 December.

From October to March: 9.30am – 5pm (last admissions at 4.15pm)
From April to September : 9.30am – 6pm (last admissions at 5.15pm)

The gardens and large park are free to the public.

We are happy to prepare a gourmet picnic basket for you so you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the royal gardens of Fontainebleau!
