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 very much up and running in all its splendour. The formal French-designed gardens are magnificent, the fountain is beautiful, the colonnes are a lovely space to have a cold...

  • Beautiful gardens and well maintained palace with interesting audio tours. Yes the work is still ongoing to finish the front of the palace but still worth a visit. Don’t miss out on visiting the roof, especially on a beautiful day - the entrance is a bit hidden so I missed it the first time, had to ask for directions to find it.
  • Beautiful palace with beautifully restored interiors. The gardens are also breathtaking. Fully rated spoil grapes shop full of nonsense, where you can't even buy a postcard or a magnet with a palace. They don't even have any text or brochure here, just audio guides. The app could not be downloaded from the Play Store.
