Discover Castle Voltaire, the architectural jewel of Ferney-Voltaire when you purchase this ticket. You can stroll through the picturesque gardens and discover one of the locations that played an important role in the enlightenment.
What to expect?
The ticket to Castle Voltaire in Ferney-Voltaire gives you access to the magnificent home where the intellectual spent the last 20 years of his life. In fact, the town was originally just called Ferney but was renamed to honor the famous philosopher.
Behind the elegant neoclassical façade is museum space dedicated to the philosopher. In the exhibition, you can see how the day-to-day life was for Voltaire during the Age of Enlightenment. You will encounter his private collection of artwork, and travel back in time when you stroll you through his library and office. It was here where he wrote great works of literature such as Candide and Treatise on Tolerance.
No trip to the Château would be complete without also visiting its beautiful French-style gardens which extend over seven hectares of land. Strolling around here, you will feel far removed from the hustle-and-bustle of modern city life.
Castle Voltaire is open every day of the year during the following times:
- From April to September: from 10 am to 6 pm.
- From October to March: from 10 am to 5 pm.
Please bear in mind that the last entry to the castle is 45 minutes before closing time.
