Story: Sainte-Chapelle Concert Series

Located on the Île-de-la-Cité, just minutes from Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle is one of France's most visited monuments. Although this is the case, only a fraction of the million visitors who pass through the chapel's ornately carved doors each year have the privilege of attending an exclusive classical concert on the other side.

A magical place
This place is just magnificent. You absolutely must visit it and what better reason than for a classical music concert? It's magical!
Stephanie
Luminosity and enlightenment
A concert in this breathtaking venue is a moment of peace and calm, and the sound of the music is amplified by the splendour of the setting.
Martine
Marvelous
An absolute must, a classical music concert in the evening is divine. Definitely worth doing.
Mike
Wonderful venue for a concert
We attended a chamber music concert at sunset, and had the astounding experience of listening to Vivaldi and Bach while watching the light fade behind the stunning stained glass windows.
Bertrand
Saturday night champagne concert
Excellent. The Sainte-Chapelle is gorgeous, the setting is magnificent and the music is magical. The chamber music was thrilling.
Chiara
A very good evening

A beautiful concert, in a divine location, the Sainte Chapelle, followed by a dinner in a bistro that was a real find,"les fous de l'Ile". The welcome was lovely, the cuisine inventive and modern with traditional flavors. A real success.

Isabelle C
Magical historical evening

I thought the ambiance, location and concert were incredible. We were very sensitive to the location and the history of the Sainte-Chapelle but seeing a concert in it made it all more special. I wish we had been given a program instead of having to purchase it.

Colette
Not to be missed

Definitely a must do event in Paris! I have been three times and the music and ambience never fails to overwhelm me. Love this venue!!

catherine b
Wonderful evening

Excellent concert! Everything was beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of it! The only thing was that the weather was very hot and the Sainte-Chapelle doesn’t have ventilation.

Sandra Cecilia
Concert in a jewel venue

Beautiful music in a beautiful setting! The musicians were very talented and the acoustics in the chapel were outstanding. The concert lasted for 1 hour. Definitely worth the price of admission.

The Sainte-Chapelle (Holy Chapel)

8 boulevard du Palais, 75001 Paris

The Saint Chapelle


Paris’ Sainte-Chapelle (Holy Chapel) is one of the finest remaining examples of Gothic French architecture. Built in the first half of the thirteenth century, it belongs to the ‘Rayonnant’ period, an architectural style characterized by an increased emphasis on ornate decoration rather than grand size. The chapel formed part of the medieval Palais de la Cité, where the French monarchy resided until the 14th Century. It was originally built to house Louis IX’s priceless collection of relics, including the Crown of Thorns of Christ, one of Christianity’s most cherished artifacts. Although damaged during the French Revolution, the chapel was restored to its shimmering prime thanks to a major renovation during the 19th century.

 

Much of the chapel as it appears today is the fruit of reconceptions by its various skilled restorers. But two thirds of the chapel’s most distinctive element, its magnificent stained glass paneling, are completely authentic. With 15 windows that stretch to 15 meters high, the Sainte Chapelle contains one of the most extensive collections of stained glass anywhere in the world. Its panels depict a total of 1,113 scenes from both the Old and New Testament. This array of scenes and colors was no doubt intended as the defining feature of the chapel’s infinitely elaborate interior, but its remaining non-stained glass walls are also richly coloured and decorated. Equally impressive is the chapel’s high vaulted ceiling, painted deep blue and gold so as to resemble the night sky. Each year the Sainte Chapelle plays host to a diverse programme of classical concerts and recitals: as a unique Parisian show venue, things don’t get more atmospheric than this!

FAQ

How do I get to the Sainte-Chapelle?

The Sainte-Chapelle is accessible by:
Metro lines: You can take line 4 to Cité or lines 1, 7, 11, and 14 to Châtelet.
RER: You can take the RER B and C to Saint-Michel Notre-Dame.
We invite you to consult the map above for directions. In case of difficulty, our hotline can be reached during our business hours. Please see the footer of this page for our contact details.

What do I do when I get to the Sainte-Chapelle?

We invite you to arrive at least 40 minutes before the showtime marked on your ticket. Since the Sainte-Chapelle is located within the premises of Paris’ Palace of Justice, concert attendees will need to pass through security checks before accessing the chapel. It is forbidden to bring sharp metal objects (knives, scissors, pliers etc), motorcycle helmets, or glass bottles into the chapel. Security guards cannot guarantee that any confiscated items will be returned to their owners.

Please note that the chapel doors will be closed five minutes before the start of the concert and late arrivals cannot be guaranteed entry. 

Where will I be seated?

There are three categories available, each of which provides a comfortable view of the performers. Our Category 1 seats are waiting in the front rows of the audience.

How long do the concerts last?

Each concert lasts approximately one hour, without an intermission.

Are these concerts for an international public or French-speakers?

Both! Each year the Saint-Chapelle welcomes a million visitors who come from across the globe. With a programme of composers originating from various countries around the world, these concerts can be enjoyed by speakers of any language.

Is there a dress code?

No, there is no dress code for the Sainte-Chapelle concert series. However, guests are recommended to dress between formal and casual. We suggest avoiding the use of shorts, crocs, and caps.
Please note that the Sainte-Chapelle is not heated during winter. We advise you to wear a coat and cover up accordingly.

I bought a Youth Rate or Student Rate ticket in the same order as my Category 1 ticket, will my group be seated together?

There are two categories available at the Sainte-Chapelle, Category 1 and 2. Youth Rate (under 10) or Student Rate (under 26) tickets will be automatically placed in Category 2. However, if the order containing a Youth or Student Rate ticket has a majority of tickets in Category 1, all tickets of that order will be placed in Category 1.
Please note that this does not apply for purchases with a fewer or equal number of Category 1 tickets unless the order contains a single ticket for Category 1 and a single Youth Rate (under 10) or Student Rate (under 26) ticket. In this exceptional case, your two tickets will be placed in Category 1.
In any case, our team will ensure that all tickets booked during the same purchase session, in the same booking order on our website are always assigned side by side.

My premium ticket includes wine and tapas, where can I receive this?

When choosing your performance date, you have the option to purchase a show-only ticket, a ticket with wine and tapas, and/or a ticket with a glass of champagne included.

 

If you chose the option with wine and tapas, you can enjoy this either after the concert or the next day at the bar “La Chope des Compagnons”, located at 86 Quai de l’Hôtel de ville, 75004 Paris, just a 10-minute walk from the Sainte-Chapelle. This information is mentioned on our website, in the add-on booking page, and on your tickets.

My premium ticket includes champagne, where do I receive this and can I ask for a soft drink instead?

When choosing your performance date, you have the option to purchase a show-only ticket, a ticket with wine and tapas, and/or a ticket with a glass of champagne included.

 

If you chose a premium ticket with champagne, you can receive your drink before or after the concert at the restaurant "Brasserie des deux Palais" by bringing your ticket to the bar and asking for your fresh, sparkling glass of champagne! If you prefer to switch out your Champagne for a soft-drink, this is also possible.

 

The address of the restaurant is included on your tickets and below:
3 Boulevard du Palais, 75004 Paris

I bought a Youth Rate or Student Rate ticket in the same order as my Category 1 ticket, will my group be seated together?

There are two categories available at the Sainte-Chapelle, Category 1 and 2. Youth Rate (under 10) or Student Rate (under 26) tickets will be automatically placed in Category 2. However, if the order containing a Youth or Student Rate ticket has a majority of tickets in Category 1, all tickets of that order will be placed in Category 1.
Please note that this does not apply for purchases with a fewer or equal number of Category 1 tickets unless the order contains a single ticket for Category 1 and a single Youth Rate (under 10) or Student Rate (under 26) ticket. In this exceptional case, your two tickets will be placed in Category 1.
