When the château was built, Versailles was a country village; today, however, it is a wealthy suburb of Paris, some 20 kilometres (12 miles) southwest of the French capital. The court of Versailles was the centre of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime.

A rope climbing structure resembling the Eiffel Tower.
A massive sandpit featuring a large wooden platform where you can hoist and lower sand in a bucket with a pulley.
An intricate system of climbing structures and slides.
A zip line
It’s next to one of the oldest and coolest carousels in Paris. Just outside of the playground is a creaking wooden carousel from the 19thcentury. No new-fangled plastic flashiness here, the animals are carved from wood and their battered haunches and faded paint jobs are a testament to their age. This carousel is proof that kids don’t always need new and shiny to be entertained – when the playground closes, they mob the carousel. Why? Because this is a traditional “brass ring” carousel. Each child receives a small baton upon climbing upon their favorite animal. As the merry-go-round circles, they try to loop the baton through a ring held by the carousel operator
2:00 PM: Luxemburg Garden - playground
