We only saw the chapel from the area where you pick up the audio guides. However, you can see the golden decorated walls, altar, and organ from that doorway. Also, the beautiful painted ceiling and marble floor. Visited Versailles in June 2012 & September 2013.

This is a great place to stop and look at when in the Chateau. The chapel is grand and very nice and is a worthy stop on your trip.

First of all: the only way to enter the church is when you book a guided-tour through the castle of Versailles! With the guide you can enter the chapel. The chapel itself is really nice. Small but as a part of the castle it couldn't be much bigger. It was a nice painting under the roof and also the altar... More

Very large chapel, beautiful appearance and rich in history. The audio commentary provides a superb description as to its importance.

Very impressive but rather "cold" place for a chapel. It does not really get you closer to God. Not as I might expect it. But, probably, this was the way those days.

This is one beautiful chapel. The organ and everything else is so beautiful. It must have been very solemn when it was in use.

Corinthian capitals atop of stately columns. Beautiful frescoes adorn the Chapel's gilded ceiling. The tiled floor in itself is art. We were only able to view from the Palace and not able to enter. And, the space to view from is limited space, so as the visitors may be long in observing the fine detail from this distance. Be patient... More

Well worth the visit, especially from the first floor, where you're able to fully view the ceiling. Try visiting earlier (9am) or late afternoon to avoid most of the tourists!!

Not to worry, the royal chapel is one of the stops along the audio guide route. There is no avoiding it nor should there be.
