Constructed by King William of Orange and Mary of England, Paleis Het Loo represents the family residence of a well-known royal line.

  • I've been to this place twice and I will never get tired of visiting this beautiful place. Seems that each time I visit the place there is always something new to see. ..beautiful flowers in such a ni...  more »
  • The Palace is a little gem. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and expose a remarkable artistic quality furniture. The library, not very big, but with a ceiling that motiplica spaces and volumes. A small habit all Nord Stream is the presence of flower arrangements that give a touch of life to spaces. French gardens, around the Palace, then get lost in a beautiful park with old trees. In the old stables at the entrance are hosted carriages and cars belonging to the Dutch Royal family. Parking and shuttle from the entrance to the Palace for a fee.

  • Nice palace however it felt more like a art museum than a look inside a royal hunting lodge. Each room is dimly lid, which makes it difficult to appreciate the beauty of the wallpaper and paintings. No information was provided what the royals and their guests would do in each of the rooms - just a list of the art and that was it. Gardens are OK
  • Really not focused on ppl not speaking Dutch. I could not go with the horses... No explanation, I could not go to the ball room... Unless I wanted something to eat
  • Beuatiful gardens and nice tours of the building, occasionally a tour of the roof from which you can see the entire garden. Lockers are available when entering the palace because backpacks are not allowed, they cost €1,-
  • Impressive palace. And what a crazy festival they have here in the summer...
  • Absolutely a place worth visiting even with younger kids. We had a lot of fun doing the treasure hunts together with our kids.
