From hunting lodge to French barracks and from summer retreat to the permanent residence of Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard: Soestdijk Palace has a long and interesting history. The palace and surrounding park have been open to the public since 2007.
Soestdijk Palace is one of the most famous palaces ever owned by the Dutch royal family. This is partly due to the fact that is was inhabited by Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard for than 70 years. Interestingly, the royal couple were given central heating and a modern apartment at the back of the palace by the people as a wedding present. Wherever possible, the interior and exterior of the building have been kept in their original condition.
Nice to know!
Soestdijk Palace estate not only consists of the 9,000 m2 palace but also 20 outbuildings and 165 ha of land, including the 12 ha English landscape garden.
