Members of the Oranje dynasty have lived at Paleis Het Loo for more than 300 years. What began as a hunting lodge for a stadtholder grew into a palace fit for a king. Every Oranje furnished the palace to his or her taste and according to the fashion of the time. Guests would stroll in the gardens and dine from beautiful dinner services. The guide will take you on a detailed tour and tell you about the palace’s rich past and its residents. You will visit all the rooms in the palace.
