The complex is enormous and the buildings are very beautiful and in good condition. Unfortunately it seems part of the outside of the main building was under maintenance, so they had the scaffolds outside the building covered with large sheets that had what the building actually looked like printed on them! The gardens were very impressive, although it was still... More

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.

It was a lovely experience. I was impressed with the displays. Not much for young children! We ate at Balzal and it was delicious!

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.

The exhibits in the house give a fascinating insight into the history of the Netherlands and the house of Orange and its place in that history. It was interesting... More

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.
