Things to see and do

The horse is king, the Grand Stables, opposite the castle, is a masterpiece of 18th century. They house the living museum of the Horse (horse shows).

For art lovers, the Condé Museum is a fabulous step: the second collection of classical paintings after the Louvre, the third library in France. It offers, within the castle, a hanging of paintings typical of the 19th century. This was wanted by the Duc d'Aumale bequeathed the estate to the Institut de France. Lose yourself in the enchanting gardens, go to "Hamlet" and enjoy it the real whipped cream!

Discover the garden of the Princes and entertainment. Trace the history of the Fountains of Chantilly by visiting the Pavilion Jacques de Manse. Finally, take time to discover the diversity of the forest.
