Through the 2021 edition of Tales and Stories, the Domaine de Saint-Cloud invites young and old to relive the history of its vanished castle through magical activities that await you during the Christmas holidays! Here is the program that awaits you from December 19 to 29, 2021.

On the occasion of the 2022 edition of the event Tales and Stories National Monuments, the Domain of Saint Cloud unveils a beautiful program for families during the Christmas vacation. From December 20 to 29, 2022, we discover several animation fun to celebrate Christmas in a different way, and to rediscover the history of this area.

The Domaine de Saint-Cloud, located in the Hauts-de-Seine, is an idyllic park of 460 hectares, decorated with fountains, ponds, sculptures, waterfalls. It once housed a mansion, a resort residence for the royal and imperial families of France. This palace was destroyed in a terrible fire in 1870. Although this building has disappeared today, you can still admire the gardens arranged.

It is therefore in these green alleys that one can take part in the animation organized for the event Tales and Stories. Between traditions and sharing, the estate offers unusual visits and shows every year, linked to the history of the place.

During these Christmas holidays 2022, we therefore take advantage of a german christmasin tribute to Elisabeth-Charlotte of Bavaria, nicknamed The Palatine. Indeed, we are celebrating the tercentenary of the death of the second wife of Monsieur, brother of the Sun King. For this occasion, animations are planned, discover the program.

    In the context of the historical museum specially decorated for the occasion, our storyteller, Christine Lapsca, from the Compagnie Les Souris Dansent, revisits the Christmas tales of the Brothers Grimm. You will also discover The Nutcracker, Hoffmann’s tale, in a synthetic version, for the pleasure of young and old.
