Paleis Het Loo, Apeldoorn
(4.5/5 based on 700+ 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. 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.

  • As an escape from the pressures of being king, to go to the countryside and relax in a palace, this was the purpose of Het Loo. Our visit here began by parking by the car and walking over to the very ...  more »
  • It was really beautiful to see. The whole design, documentation, and the exhibited pieces were a feast for the eyes. Certainly for the people which of history, but also for the people with an interest in the old Russia in the time of the tsars.

  • 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.
