The program includes a costumed tour of the château by Napoleon, concerts, the international wine exhibition Grand Prix Austerlitz, a crafts fair, and gastronomic specialties. The birth of Emperor Napoleon is commemorated with an evening multimedia show “Austerlitz Heaven” with the château lit by hundreds of candles.
