Meeting with Santa Claus

Chambord Castle becomes a must for Christmas celebrations during this winter period. While some will enjoy strolling in the French gardens, others will prefer to enjoy the rhythm of the musicians and admire the characters dressed in 16th century costumes. Between musical activities, singing and dance classes, old music, Chambord offers an artistic and magical Christmas.

GAMES FROM THE 16TH TO THE 18TH CENTURY

Dès le 1er décembre, les visiteurs peuvent s’initier aux jeux et divertissements auxquels s’adonnaient les souverains et la cour aux XVIe, XVIIe, XVIIIe siècles. Les passionnés du Grand Siècle peuvent, quant à eux, s’essayer au trou-madame et au billard, jeux très à la mode à l’époque de Louis XIV. Pour les adeptes des jeux plus traditionnels, jeu de l’oie, jeu de dames et jeu du renard sont à dispo­sition du public. Jeux en libre accès dès le 1er décembre.
