About this experience

Duke Louis of Orléans built Château de Pierrefonds in 1397 as a fortress to solidify power over trade routes between Flanders and Burgundy.




The castle was dismantled by King Louis XIII in 1617 to prevent it from serving as a refuge for his enemies. In 1857, Emperor Napoleon III ordered its reconstruction with the intent of making it an imperial residence. That project was not fully completed and Château de Pierrefonds opened to the public in 1867.

The restoration was entrusted to Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, one of the greatest architects and designers of the day. Viollet-le -Duc was passionate about Medieval architecture, and many consider Château de Pierrefonds to be his greatest work. You will be immersed in his celebration of the Gothic era construction and ornamentation. 

You’ll see the permanent exhibition from the Monduit workshops, famous for the use of the repousse technique on sheet metals. These craftsmen restored many historical monuments and helped create the Statue of Liberty. The roofs of Pierrefonds are an excellent example of this art form.

Go City is a better way to sightsee. Your pass includes Château de Pierrefonds tickets, plus admission to dozens of top Paris attractions for one money-saving price.
