The EDELWEISS experiment is a dark matter direct detection experiment using cryogenic germanium bolometers equipped with a set of interleaved electrodes, designed to achieve high background rejection. After introducing the detector design and developments, we will review the final results of the EDELWEISS-II stage, which consisted in a one-year-long search for WIMPs with ten 400-g detectors. The status of the ongoing EDELWEISS-III phase will be presented, whose core is a set of 40 so-called FID detectors of 800g each. Finally we will introduce the design of the future EURECA ton-scale experiment.
