On 19th en 26th of June and every Wednesday in July 2013 Het Loo Palace will be opening the palace roof to visitors. Once a view reserved in the seventeenth century for the elite, now a spectacular experience for everyone!
The staircase through the attic of the palace comes out in the pavilion of Queen Mary (1652-1695) where she used to drink tea with her ladies-in-waiting.
From the roof you have an unexpectedly wide view of the gardens and the surroundings of the palace. The view of the berceaux or arcades covered with hornbeam is particularly splendid. Here, adjacent to her private apartments, Queen Mary had the habit of enjoying the shade afforded by the arches with her courtiers.
