Royal Palace het Loo
Welcome to the summer palace of Willem and Mary! Built in the late 17th century the Royal Palace is situated in the middle of the Veluwe moorland, an extensive hunting ground. Beautifully decorated with both stunning and unique baroque palace gardens and fountains, this tour brings you back to the core of Europe’s royal history!
After Willem and Mary, the Dutch royal family kept Het Loo as their summer palace. In 1795 the French army invaded The Netherlands and the palace was plundered. But by 1806 Het Loo was occupied once more, by Louis Napoleon, who had been appointed King of Holland by his brother Napoleon Bonaparte.
Both King Willem I and Willem III loved to spend time at Palace Het Loo, far from their busy lives in The Hague. Het Loo was very special to Queen Wilhelmina, and there was no place she would rather be! The last residents of the palace were Princess Margriet and her family who resided in the palace until 1977.
After a visit to the Palace, you will also have time to wander around in the beautiful baroque gardens and have lunch.
