Copy of Dutch architecture - surprisingly real

We spent one evening and half a day in Huis ten Bosch. We stayed at Henna Hotel just outside one of the gates to the park. The park was much larger than we expected and also much... read more

Stayed in The Grand Europe Hotel. Couldn't get a table for dinner in the hotel or the park without a long wait, which is unacceptable at these prices. When we arrived (around 3pm) supply of bicycles/quadricycles did not meet demand; so we had to walk. A lot. I could have done with a wheelchair, but there were none of those... More

Being stationed in Sasebo Japan this was the first place I went and made many returns. Watched New Years fireworks 2014, outstanding show. Fireworks going off for over 30 minutes.

It's a huge European park, with not a cheap entrance fee. Well, you think that entrance fee means all attractions are free? Sorry, this is not Disneyland or Universal studio. The more interesting ones, even Ferris Wheel, needs extra charge! If you choose to visit this place, stay through the night. The lights around the park is something worth to... More

Was unsure what to expect given mixed reviews online but was surprised by how charming the place is. It really feels like you are in Europe - the architecture is superbly done. The light show at the Huis Ten Bosch palace was beautiful. The attractions (rides, shows etc) were not very appealing but just to spend time walking around, taking... More

We spent one evening and half a day in Huis ten Bosch. We stayed at Henna Hotel just outside one of the gates to the park. The park was much larger than we expected and also much more "real" when it comes to the Dutch architecture, including materials, colors and feel to it. Luckily I was there with a Dutch... More

A theme park with a Dutch theme. It's a disappointment as there are not a lot of activities to do apart from a water park and a few iconic sites. You pay a fee to get into the park and some activities needs extra charges as well. Not a good selling point.

We arrived at Huis Ten Bosch at about 5pm. We wanted to swim on the large play area, however after taking our time walking through the gardens and being distracted we arrived to late to swim. Never mind! We had dinner, and once the sun set all of the beautiful lights came on. This is a must to visit at... More

Huis Ten Bosch is certainly 90% family place. Lots to look around as you stroll through the Holland city. Many places to eat and shop. Beautiful flower gardens. It is certainly a full day activity. Wear good waking shoes, have plenty of cash with you and your phone is charged to take lots of pictures.

Not a bad day overall but most attractions are either outdated or not working. The water park was definately worth the visit

Weather was too hot in the day time. Better if you come in a cooler time. All games outdated. Good thing was no queue at all. More people at the water park which only opens during summer. That's lots of fun and kids can spend hours there.
