Paleis Het Loo, Apeldoorn

(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Constructed by King William of Orange and Mary of England, Paleis Het Loo represents the family residence of a well-known royal line.

  • Beautiful stables ... good information signs ... clear route ... great tour and fantastic gardens. Restaurant was also good. A separate opposition between the milk/sugar bowl compared to the glass of the cups .... separate conbi classic/modern. Parking quite pricey. Really a nice day out

  • The most beautiful Palace in Netherlands, with lots of stuff from different generations of Kings and Queens. Guides who know a lot and explain, interesting exhibitions (this time Anna Palowna. Only missed the dresses from her). And then the gardens also! If you have a lot of time, I would also still in spring to the old Loo. With guide, so beautiful all those stories there!!!!!

  • Beautiful castle with this time an exhibition of Anna Palowna. This time there was snow and it was completely magical.

  • 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.
