A monumental and majestic show: A Night at the Invalides
Published on , in Events
Situated a few steps from the Champs de Mars, the Invalides complex is instantly recognisable due to the imposing golden dome which dominates the huge classical building. For more than 10 years, this has provided the backdrop for a fascinating sound and light show dedicated to history, the Nuit aux Invalides. Take advantage of your summer visit to the Hotel Le Six and let yourself be carried away by the magic of this unique spectacle!
In the main courtyard
The Invalides complex was built at the request of Louis XIV to house the many aged, disabled and wounded soldiers who had served their country so well. A symbol of classical architecture, the place impresses with the rigor and symmetry of its facades, the beauty of its cathedral dome and the geometric arrangement of its immense esplanade. The paved main courtyard, lined with regular galleries, is the perfect setting to host the truly impressive sound and light show that enchants Parisians and visitors alike.
An immersion in sound and images
Every evening throughout the summer, the Invalides provides the ideal setting for a fascinating story recounting the highlights of the history of Paris and that of France in general. Using the voices of great actors, the narration takes you to the heart of the most tragic and moving events, captivating history enthusiasts as well as the young and curious. The state-of-the-art sound and the latest generation laser projections on the facades captivate the audience. If you wish, you can combine your ticket for the Nuit aux Invalides with a visit to Napoleon's tomb and the dome.
Located about twenty minutes on foot from the Hôtel Le Six, the Invalides is hosting the show La Nuit aux Invalides for the 11th year. Renewed every year, the show offers wonderful entertainment for all ages. Book today!
