Hotel Palais de Chaillot Paris

International congress at OECD

Very close to the Hotel Palais de Chaillot, The Château de la Muette, is the OECD headquarter, located on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, near the Porte de la Muette.

Three châteaux have been located on the site since a hunting lodge was transformed into the first château for Princess Marguerite de Valois, favorite daughter of King Henry II, sister of Kings Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III and the first wife of King Henry IV, in the 16th century. The first château was extended and substantially reconstructed by Louis XV. Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette lived at this second château, and the first manned flight, in a hot air balloon, set off from the château in 1783.

The old château was demolished in the 1920s to make room for substantial houses, including a new château built by Henri James de Rothschild, which is now part of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s headquarters.

Les Grandes Eaux Musicales du château de Versailles

The gardens were at the heart of King Louis XIV’s attention and are world famous today. Already at the time of the King’s reign, the Versailles groves were open air saloons secluded at the heart of the wooded parts of the garden. The court went there for a light meal, to listen to music or to dance. The King could satisfy his taste for gambling and theatre in these sites dedicated to entertainment and leisure. Decorated with fountains, vases and statues, these groves with their secret access bring fantasy and surprise within the Royal Garden. These green bowers are now exceptionally accessible for you to discover.

The talent of the 17th century fountain engineers and of their successors has always made the Musical Fountains Show an unforgettable and fairytale experience. The fountains play with multiple special effects and marble and metal gods, humans and animals seem to come to life for a few moments, for our greatest pleasure. When the fountains are playing, a ballet comes alive to enchant each and all.

Your royal stroll will unfold to the tunes of the greatest baroque composers from Lully to Charpentier or Rameau.
