Constructed by King William of Orange and Mary of England, Paleis Het Loo represents the family residence of a well-known royal line.

  • Amazingly beautiful palace. Unfortunately we haven't been inside, but had the opportunity to go up on the roof and see the garden view from the top. And you can also enjoy nature there while walking through some kind of a forest.
  • Beautiful park, palace (the photos are before renovation) and garden. It's almost like a local Versailles. There are walking tours. One for the garden and the other one for the stables. Both are very informative and interesting. It’s recommended to visit the palace inside as of 2021.
