  • The Palace is filled with great art and you could spend lots of time in the building. Do allow time for touring the grounds as they are very large and lush with green. Well worth the visit and much to...  more »
  • The gardens next to this palace are really amazing. Looking like Versailles almost! And in the palace there are regular exhibitions on Dutch Royalty in history or present times. All very worthwile.  more »
  • Be sure to manage time upfront in order not to be late for the visit. The palace is one of the top sites in Netherlands and needs to be seen. We only had chance for outside walk around the palace.  more »

  • This is one huge and best palace in the Netherlands which tourists should never miss. It has a French styled garden and lots of beautiful statues in it. The interior design of the palace is marvelous and you'll see lots of paintings and antiques. I was surprised that the former Dutch queen even had far-east porcelain and decoration. The park of Oude Loo will only be opened between April and May every year. The palace Het Loo is worthy to visit again and again.
  • absolutely a wonderful palace and grounds to walk. lots of great memories, I wish there was an option for private tours that take you to rooms people dont normally get to see but none the less great place to see highly recommend !
  • Beautiful place with huge royal garden. Also, it has nice presentation to show history of Dutch royal family and their life style. The best thing is, besides dutch, they provide english description.
  • 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
  • Queen Wilhemina's sanctuary, one of the beautiful palace in the Netherlands. The back garden is amazing!
