Reopening of Chambord on 19 May 2021 !

In accordance with government regulations, as of 21 July 2021, the presentation of a health pass is compulsory for visits to the château and the French gardens, access to the estate’s shops and the performance of the horse and bird of prey show.

This applies to people aged 18 and over (for those between 12 and 17: obligation postponed to 30 september).

The health pass will be requested upon arrival at the main checkpoint, located at the exit of the car parks, in front of the Welcome Hall. Secondary checkpoints are located at the entrance to the castle, under the royal porch and in the Écuries du Maréchal de Saxe before the horse show.

The health pass can be presented in paper format with a QR Code, in PDF format or with the “TousAntiCovid” application.

Access to the castle, the French gardens and the equestrian show will therefore be possible on condition that one of the following documents is presented:

– Proof of vaccination, provided that people have a complete vaccination schedule (seven days after the second dose).
– Proof of a negative RT-PCR or antigen test less than 72 hours old.
– The result of an RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid-19 dating back at least 11 days and less than six months

Please note: self-tests are not accepted for the health pass.
