Chorknabe went for a hike.

    Prolog:
    The tour of the castle and gardens was 15 km. Unfortunately, Komoot was of the opinion to resume the paused recording of night photos of the Eiffel Tower (I did not take photos with Komoot) and thus to add it to the tour. That's why I smuggle in two photos of the Eiffel Tower at night.
    Plot:
    Last night we decided to visit Versailles today. We bought the tickets online at night and downloaded them to our mobile phones, there is a 30-minute staggered entrance fee. Then we took the RER C to Versailles train station (this is where the tour starts) and then to the palace. We were there at 12.20 p.m. and saw a huge queue from the 12.00 p.m. slot. But, the organizers are apparently used to a lot more crowds, everything was calm and relaxed and we were in the castle at 12:50 pm.
    You can say a lot or a little about the castle. I won't say a lot (there are travel guides for more), it's just pure pomp, the eye is literally stunned. The rush of visitors was limited and so it was a relaxed and educational (audio guide) visit. It is a very clear increase compared to German palaces (you can see why Versailles was the model), perhaps the Hermitage in St. Petersburg can still keep up.The size and versatility of the gardens surprised me. The expansion meant that in some places you were even completely alone. Everything can be found that served royal amusement, e.g. water games with and without music, a very large canal, wide bridle path, many great lines of sight and again and again small or large artistic and architectural surprises (sculptures, English village ...).There is also a lot on offer in botanical terms. The garden design is predominantly French, but there is also a large English garden at Le Petit Trianon and all the grounds are very well maintained.In addition, we had dream weather, 22 ° C with a cloudless sky and a very bearable number of visitors. It was a great afternoon.I would have liked to have spent two hours longer there (but it was getting dark), from that point of view 12:30 p.m. was actually too late, 10:30 a.m. will be booked for the next visit.In the evening we went to the Eiffel Tower to see it illuminated and glittering (5 minutes every full hour).Paris is a great city.

    Oh, the castle of castles, a model for tens of castles in the world. I guess one day wasn't enough for that. It would also be a worthwhile goal for me to see the role model in person. It will certainly take three full days for everything.
    But you took great photos! You can literally experience all the pomp and the megalomania.

    @Heiner
    After a day, I only have a rough overview. Only walked through the castle and the Grand Trianon (and didn't get lost in details), other buildings were only viewed from the outside.
    In the garden, too, I couldn't absorb all the details and ideas in such a short time.
    With the right photo equipment and an eye for detail, I would spend at least 5 days there and wouldn't be bored.

    Ouch, five days, it'll be expensive. Is there at least one season ticket for this time?
