Paleis Het Loo, Apeldoorn

4.4
Constructed by King William of Orange and Mary of England, Paleis Het Loo represents the family residence of a well-known royal line. Originally constructed in the late 17th century, the palace boasts Baroque architecture, extensive grounds, and a spacious garden in the rear. Visit the complex and join a guided tour, which requires a reservation, or simply follow the self-guided tour laid out by the museum's visitor guide. You'll view many personal articles and decorative items belonging to the House of Orange-Nassau adorning the interior of the buildings--they amount to some 160,000 objects, ranging from paintings and sculptures to personal photographs and clothes. Afterwards, kick back with a drink or a snack at one of the on-site terraced restaurants.

  • It was worth, after we were so disappointed Versailles from the garden, it was here more than worthwhile. Beautiful gardens and great Park, small but nice. We come again when the lock is finished.

  • Although the Palace is currently closed the gardens are still open and are magnificent. Be sure to go up to the viewing gallery to see them from above - they look just like a Turkish carpet. Wonderful...  more »
  • Although part of the museum is closed due to a largest rebuilding continues it's always worth a token at the stables!

  • Beautiful Louvre-style palace and gardens.Large area enough to spend whole day.
  • Nice place, but the renovation makes for less then perfect surroundings, the garden is, if you like formal French gardens, quite nice.
  • Worthwhile to go there and vist the royal gardens and stables. The museum was closed at this moment because of renovation works.
  • Unique historic insights into the lives of Dutch royals. Beautiful palace, wonderful gardens and stables where you see horses, carriages and cars. Take a break in one of the two (I think) restaurants and don’t forget to take the museum quest for the kids. It helps you discover wonderful details, and there’s a reward for the little ones in it as well!
  • Tuinen zijn prachtig, alleen zijn ze momenteel bezig met een verbouwing.
