Cycling & walking routes around Het Loo

Paleis Het Loo is closed

The palace is closed until 2021 due to renovation.


Walkers can really enjoy themselves at Paleis Het Loo. You can walk as much as you like on the Stables Square and in the Gardens. At the end of the Baroque Dutch garden you can start the 'Orange Trail'  walk, which partly leads through the Palace park. The Orange Trail takes you along the ponds, various pavilions and royal Boathouses. Plenty of fun for everyone!
