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

a most magnificent building built by King Willem III who was also King of England. and remained in use until the passing of Queen Wilhelmina. The Grace Kelly exhibition also on show in the palace, on its own is just brilliant.

The inside of the palace is your standard European palace and the kids got a bit bored with it. It's not too long though and if you're already there... More

The palace was stunning! Great architecture, great art, but Willem the 3rd must have loved himself a great deal to build something like that.

Gorgeous gardens. Bring a picnic and enjoy. Well worth doing the walk around the woodland and bathing lake area which takes about an hour and is well shaded. Makes a lovely contrast to the formal gardens.
