Who hasn’t heard of Het Loo Palace? This famous landmark stands on the outskirts of Apeldoorn and has been home to the Orange-Nassau family for 300 years. The furnished rooms and halls are testimony to this. The palace is surrounded by stunning 17th century baroque gardens.
When you step into Het Loo Palace, you step into the world of Orange-Nassau. You can marvel at Queen Emma’s living room, peer into Queen Wilhelmina’s study and discover what King Willem III’s bedroom looked like. Also open to the public are the stables and the coach house where you can take a close look at the royal carriages, cars and sleighs. From April to October you can also visit the baroque gardens, which were renovated from 2007 to 2015.
NOTE: On 8 January 2018, Het Loo Palace closed its doors prior to a three-year-long refurbishment and extension. The gardens and stables will however stay open to the public from April to October.
