Presentation

Saturday January 28 at 2.30 p.m.: Guided tour “Saint Germain imperial city"
 

If the monarchy gave its royal character to St Germain, it is the 2 emperors who will give impetus to its military aspect.

Indeed, Napoleon (the 1st), who often comes to hunt in the forest, decided in 1809 to create a cavalry school in the castle.

His nephew (Napoleon III) installed the imperial guard there in the Gramont and Luxembourg districts with his officers' mess. In addition, it was he who transformed the old castle into a museum of National Antiquities.

By their contribution, they therefore fully justify the name of "St Germain imperial city".
 

Duration 1h30

Price: €12 per adult and €7 for 12-25 year olds. The price includes entrance fees to the castle.
 

Meet in front of the castle, Place Charles de Gaulle, 78100 Saint-Germain-en-Laye
