Apeldoorn: Het Loo Palace Entry Ticket

1. Apeldoorn: Het Loo Palace Entry Ticket

Palace Stories Visitors can choose from three different stories during their time at the palace (audio via an app or paid audio device). Different characters take you back in time when the royal residents lived in the palace. The new underground foyer welcomes the visitor underneath the glass bottom fountain and gives access to the palace and museum galleries. Willem and Marry: Meet the first occupants of Paleis Het Loo. The story of Willem III and Mary is a dramatic mix of power, family and religion. When the young couple became king and queen of England, Paleis Het Loo became the centre of power in Europe. Count Hans Willem Bentinck – Willem III’s best friend – will tell you all about 17th-century politics and the secrets of the palace. Wilhelmina’s Home: Wilhelmina, King Willem-Alexander’s great-grandmother, lived here at Paleis Het Loo. This was her favourite palace. Guides Ziarah and Mark will take you into her world, with stories about life at the palace in the 19th and 20th centuries. Get to know them a little better in the place they called home. At Home with the Royals: A palace is just like your home. What does home feel like? It’s not just a house to live in, or – if you’re king or queen – to work in. The palace is full of expensive furniture and old paintings. But is it also nice and cosy? Palace Roof This is where Queen Mary drank her tea. From the roof of the castle you have a wide view of the park. You can also see the symmetry and the patterns of the baroque gardens very well from above. On the other side of the roof one can see the forecourt of the palace. Exhibition The House of Orange-Nassau The collection of works of art, objects and photos of the royal family will take you on a journey through the history of the Dutch monarchy and gives an insight into the private life of the House of Orange-Nassau. Palace Gardens Willem and Mary created a large baroque garden. It shows their power and wealth in full glory, with high fountains, impressive statues and fragrant flowers and plants. The garden is exactly as the first inhabitants of Paleis Het Loo had it laid out. Stables Square The stables square has a 20th-century feel – the time of Queen Wilhelmina and her husband Prince Hendrik. The building housing the ‘Prins Hendrik Garage’ restaurant was where he kept his cars. These days the cars are in the coach houses, where you can also see sleighs, carriages and other special vehicles, which the Dutch royal family used for important events. Part of the stable block is now used by the king’s Royal Stables and it still houses horses. Orange Trail Behind the palace gardens is a romantic landscaped garden full of winding paths and a variety of trees. This part was created in the early 19th century. The atmosphere is entirely different from the baroque palace gardens. The Orange Trail provides a glimpse into the personal lives of the Dutch royal family. Please note that the photo’s used on this page are owned by Paleis Het Loo.

The origins of the Netherlands, the population, the climate and the geography are discussed in the cinema. And in the last room you can query the complete Canon on an 18 meter wide touch screen.

What people are saying about Veluwe

Absolutely beautiful gallery in a beautiful park. A bit of effort to get there from Amsterdam, took me 1 tram, 1 train, and 2 busses, but finding the way and transfers was easy enough, and public transport has wifi to keep track of where you're going. And you get nice scenery along the way! The museum is in a national park, which is lovely to walk through, if a bit overpriced. The gallery itself is in a beautiful building, with a well designed layout and a stunning collection. They also have a fantastic sculpture garden to walk through. I spent almost a week in Amsterdam, and going out to Kroller-Muller was a highlight, very highly recommend!!

Dear People, Through this company I bought a ticket for the exhibition in the KM museum. It went well and you are well informed. But I would like to ask you not to bother me with E-mails for all kinds of activities. That's why I'm unsubscribing. I understand that you want to keep as many customers as possible, and wish you the best> if you have a very interesting trip, I'm curious about that. I've been doing nature photography since I was a kid, and I still want to go to the roughest, most beautiful nature parks in the world, maybe you know something? Greetings and good luck Hans Koster.
