The palace is the only royal residence open to the public in The Netherlands. Visiting the rooms is an unique experience as you get in touch with the way royals lived in this place. The gardens Are beautiful and the park surrounding the plane gives you lots of chancs to walk in the open air.

Wonderful palace with beautiful gardens. The only thing that I have to point which was not so good was the service of the restaurant: very slow and not so friendly.

I had heard about Het Loo since childhood, but was unprepared for its size and richness. An excellent brochure leads visitors through the rooms and through Dutch history.

This year i went with my colleagues to this beautiful park. Gardens are excellent. You can see the royal history. In spring or fall you may enjoy this museum. Do not forget see the Royal carriage museum.

Really impressed with the gardens. The beech tree walk is not to be missed. Spent four hours just walking around the gardens and grounds.
