7 tips for enjoying the International Garden Festival 2018

The 27thInternational Garden Festival in the Regional Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire recently opened its doors to welcome visitors to the "Jardins de la pensée” (Gardens of thought). For the occasion, we’ve decided to share a few tips with you for getting the most out of this year’s edition!
  • For those travelling by train, there are shuttles running from the station in Onzain/Chaumont up to the château from 14 April onwards. You can also benefit from a concessionary rate at the entrance to the Domain upon presentation of your train ticket.
  • If the weather’s fine, consider travelling by bike. The Regional Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire is located on the route of La Loire à Vélo. Spaces to lock up bikes and leave baggage free of charge are available at each of the entrances to the Domain.
  • Inside, you can visit the château, park and stables, wander around the International Garden Festival and discover the works of contemporary art in the Arts and Nature Centre, all for a single admission fee! 
  • You can easily spend a whole day visiting and exploring the site! A gourmet restaurant, Mediterranean buffet and other dining options are ready to welcome visitors for a tasty break.
  • Download the "Château of Chaumont-sur-Loire" visitor app to discover the château in an interactive and connected way!
  • Last but not least, don't miss "the Gardens of Light" event in summer. In July and August, the International Garden Festival is open at night and lit up by LEDs.
