worth Knowing

Paleis Het Loo is closed

The palace is closed until 2021 due to renovation.

Good to know

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 stables and in the gardens. The flowers, bushes, trees and fountains are all part of the collection and are delicate.
  • At temperatures above 35 degrees the palace roof is closed and no tours are given. The rooftop is closed now due to renovation.
  • Guided tours may only be given by the guides designated by Paleis Het Loo.
  • You may photograph and film for your own private purposes (photography for commercial purposes is not permitted). However, flash is not permitted, nor a tripod or 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 stables and the gardens.
  • You can park bicycles in the appropriate bicycle parking facilities (near the general parking area).

SPECIFICALLY FOR SCHOOLS

To ensure you get the most from your school visit, we would ask you to look through this page with the group leaders and/or the pupils.

  • All lessons and tours in the stables or the gardens are supervised by one of our museum teachers.
  • Because of the many visitors in and around Paleis Het Loo and to ensure the quality of the lesson when you visit, it is important that you notify us of your visit via info@paleishetloo.nl.
  • We ask you to ensure that there is 1 adult accompanying staff member for each 10 pupils. Your specific group may require more accompanying staff members. We rely here on your good sense.
  • Coats and bags can be left in the education area.
  • Visiting address: main entrance via Amersfoortseweg (parking area)
  • Unforeseen damage caused by your pupils will be charged to your school.
