The Het Loo palace is extremely beautiful with some amazing garden views. If the weather is good, its quite nice to go with friends, families or kids for an entire day and enjoy the palace away from the city in the greens

It was a fear compensation after terrible visit of Amusement Park Konig in Julian Toren..... You can park your car just in front of the palace, but I suggest to park on the second parking slot, on the other end of the park and take the walk to the palace throughout the fantastic forest. The palace itself is very nice... More

Very opulent palace with lots of history. The visit takes you through the palace and then to the gardens. It's easy to miss that there aren't just the formal gardens but a more English romantic style garden beyond with lakes. Hard to fit it all in in one day so get there early!

Beautiful palace and gardens. Went with my twin daughters of five yrs and a baby. Amazing experience for all three. Nice clean and tasty cafeteria. Had a 4 hour stay of pure pleasure. Highly recommended (especially for enchanted by princesses girls)

It was very busy inside the palace due to the rainy weather. We couldn't see too many attractions in the garden as shown in the palace advertisements. Only some bubbles for kids and some music. But the garden was beautiful.

We are Dutch, but even for us, this palace gives a nice overview of the history of the Netherlands. Several royal generations have lived here, and the rooms are examples a those different times. To add to this, we recommend the Multmedia experience in the stables just left after the entrance/ticketing office, which gives a lot of (additional) information about... More

This is exactly the kind of building I love, great location, rich in history and full of beautiful furniture and objects that give you a real sense of the place and the people who lived there. Built by William and Mary it is a real trip back in time, and thanks to the great audio guide you learn an incredible... More

We actually saw this palace as a miniature in Den Hague miniature city and thought it looked so beautiful we had to visit. About 1 hours on train from Amsterdam and then 15 min bus ride to the Paleis. We entered where the coach house and stables were, which actually free to enter. You only have to show a ticket... More

A lovely traditional Dutch Palace full of history and with fabulous grounds and even better when the wandering peacocks strut about with full open feathers! The only one negative I have is that everything is in Dutch. Having a Flemish speaking husband is great but having to wait for him to translate everything is not so great. I do understand... More

I love the stable, the palace and the sisi exhibition, but the best of the best part is the royal garden. Some people compare it to Versailles, I have to say the garden here is much more lovely. Everything is gorgeous and effluent, stunning and breath taking, after 5 hours visit I still don't want to leave.
