We came here on a rainy day and enjoyed ourselves. Entering through the ticket office, the first area to visit is the stables. No horses in evidence at this point, but an impressive number of stalls. The hall where many of the carriages and sleighs were displayed was very interesting and impressive. Nice way to live! From there there is... More

You can reach this lodge from the train station by #10 bus. I found this building complex interesting in comparison with the much more excessive Versailles, Frederiksborg, and Kungliga slott. Paleis het Loo lacks the Baroque majesty of these other buildings even though it was occupied by stadtholders, an English king and queen, and then Dutch royals. Much of its... More

The palace is something I will never expect finding in The Netherlands, it really is different from all the traditional architecture, it has some french style influence. And the history behind is really interesting. Totally recommend it. If you are going by public transportation it might be little confusing when arriving as the entrance to the palace and the place...

This piece of Dutch history has remained intact for quite a while, it wasnt too long ago that the Royals actually lived here themselves. I loved to see some of my country's heritage including their rides. (Cars and carriages) We went to visit the palace on a Saturday (off-season), not too crowded (noon-3PM) You have to cover a lot of... More

A summer residence for royals for many years, The Palace of Het Loo is not a widely known stop outside of The Netherlands. Still worthwhile, especially during peek flower season as it is known for its gardens. We were their off season but found it enjoyable with less crowds. Us girls particularly enjoyed the former Queen's fashions on display and... More

The palace is much smaller and you can finish within 1.5 hrs or so. It would be best that you've scheduled one whole day. I went in a autumn and the weather was pretty cold to have flowers blooming hence, the garden is pretty boring. I spent about 30 mins walking around the garden and the photos didnt' turn out...
