The palace and the gardens are more than 300 years old and require considerable care and maintenance. To ensure that you get the most from your visit, Paleis Het Loo has a number of rules.
- Paleis Het Loo is a museum with valuable artworks and it attracts a lot of visitors. Please be considerate towards the other visitors. It is important to walk slowly and talk quietly, to retain a distance from the works of art and keep to the paths, both in the palace and in the gardens. The flowers, bushes, trees and fountains are all part of the collection and are delicate.
- Guided tours may only be given by the guides designated by Paleis Het Loo.
- You may photograph and film in the palace for your own private purposes (photography for commercial purposes is not permitted). However, flash is not permitted, nor a tripod of selfie-stick. Certain exhibitions may prohibit any filming or photography.
- Dogs are not admitted, with the exception of guide-dogs for the visually impaired and assistance dogs. This applies to both the palace and the gardens.
- You can park bicycles in the appropriate bicycle parking facilities (near the general parking area and the service parking area on Loseweg).
- You can hand in coats and bags at the cloakroom in the basement of the palace.
- Writing and drawing is permitted in the palace, but only with pencil.
Specifically for schools
