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.

  • The Palace het Loo is worth a visit at any time of the year. In the side wing is often a temporary exhibition. In the main visit are the Orange Central. The garden is a picture and there can be made beautiful pictures. Through a gate at the end of the Garden may lag behind walking park in. Here you will find a bathroom of Wilhelmina and many springs and ponds. A visit to the Palace is a must and take the time for at least 4 to 5 hours.

  • Great location from Apeldoorn. Easy to get around onsite. Beautiful grounds. Excellent displays and historical stories.

  • I loved it. Great for all ages. A truly unique and special place.
  • Gardens are beautiful after all the work!
  • The palace inside is quite beautiful, much as you'd expect from a royal palace. For those interested in royal history, it's definitely worth visiting. There is a large garden, which is impressive, although it's difficult to appreciate on a day when the weather is bad, as it was when I visited. Nonetheless, an enjoyable day out.
  • Beautiful place showing the history of the dutch Royal family.
