The excursion is part of the Professional Lighting Design week in Paris.

Versailles is the mother of all palaces. Attendees of this excursion will have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit the Grands Appartments, L’Opéra Royal and the Chapelle Royale on a private tour while the Château is closed to the public.

The tour will include a cocktail reception, and will end in the world-famous gardens to view the exterior lighting of the façade, the garden and the water features.

This summer saw the completion of a gorgeous lighting installation at one of Europe’s most famous landmarks: Château Versailles. eldoLED PowerPIX are lighting the mid section of Castle Versailles’ façade and POWERdrive 562/S are lighting the park, access road to the palace and fountains in nighttime lighting spectacles during the summer months.

Lighting design was done by Les Eclairagistes associés (M. Laurent Fachard). The lighting designers mimicked the thousands of candles that used to light the façade and park during the reign of Louis XIV.

Attendance is free-of-charge and open to independent lighting designers only.

The excursion is is fully booked.

Attendees are asked to meet at the bus stop at 16.45.
