Access to the gardens is free of charge, except for Fountain Show and Musical Gardens days (from April to October). In this case, buy a Passport ticket at the Ticket Office in the South Ministers Wing or a Fountain Show or Musical Gardens ticket at the entrance to the gardens.

The gardens are open every day from 8 am to 8.30 pm during the high season (April to October) and from 8 am to 6 pm during the low season (November to March) except for exceptional events and when there are Fountains Night Show (closure at 5.30 pm).
