Fontainebleau has a proud history of having been a sovereign residence for eight centuries.

Constantly lived in, converted, decorated and enhanced, Fontainebleau held a special place in the hearts of all sovereigns who reigned in France, from the accession of Louis VII in 1137 to the abdication of Napoleon III in 1870. Each sovereign embellished the residence of their predecessors.

Francis I, Henry IV, Louis XV and Louis XVI bequeathed us the most exceptional artworks of their time. Napoleon I, viewing it as "the true dwelling of kings, the residence of the centuries", quickly restored and refurbished the château that the Revolution had emptied.

The Château de Fontainebleau has featured a little train, allowing visitors to discover the grounds and gardens in a fun way. An audio-guide is available in 7 languages (French, English, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Russian).
