The Château de Pierrefonds is a majestic and beautiful palace which has weathered the whims of kings for hundreds of years and is certain to be a favorite of any Paris visitor.

Original built by Philippe d' Orléans in the 15th century and demolished on the order of Louis XIII in the 17th century. 200 years later Napoleon III ordered that Château de Pierrefonds be rebuilt as an imperial residence. This work was undertaken by one of the greatest designers of the day-Viollet-le-Duc, and it is often cited as his greatest work.

The Château de Pierrefonds features a permanent exhibition of the masterpieces of 19th century ornamentation produced by the Monduit workshops. These expert craftsmen restored a wealth of historical monuments, worked extensively for the Great Exhibitions of 1889 and 1900, and helped to create the Statue of Liberty.

Visiting this historic castle is free for all Paris Pass holders – a saving of 7.50 Euros for an adult.

Château de Pierrefonds rises majestically out of the Compiègne forest. It is both imposing and spectacularly beautiful, with particularly lovely grounds. Enjoy a relaxing stroll through these tranquil gardens for free with your Paris Pass.
