The Virtual World of the Palace of Versailles



The application is basically an invitation to the heart of Versailles. The VR application offers a detailed tour of the Royal Grand Apartments, the Chapel and the Opera amongst others. With photogrammetry, a 3-dimensional universe is reconstructed from 2D images of the 24 emblematic rooms of the palace. In partnership with Google Arts & Culture, the virtual reality is available for everyone worldwide. New technologies offered by Google met with the desires of Versailles to share the incredible wealth of the heritage. Catherine Pégard, President of the Palace of Versailles states that although “nothing will ever replace the emotion of actually stepping into the Palace, we hope this visual immersion might inspire you to do just that.”
