Palace park

The palace park is a part of Het Loo Royal Estate and is open the whole year round. With an area of 650 hectare the park is ideal for strolling and walking. It lies adjacent to Paleis Het Loo and around hunting lodge Het Loo.

Walking

Traditionally this park was for the relaxation of the royal residents of Het Loo and their guests. The palace park features ponds, a bath-house and several follies. The origins of the palace park can be traced back to stadtholder Willem II, who purchased hunting lodge Het Loo in 1684 together with 200 hectare land. Het Loo Royal Estate was also very important for Queen Wilhelmina. She purchased many acres of land and donated this to the State in 1959, retaining the rights of usage for the reigning monarch. This explains the name for the whole area: Het Loo Royal Estate. The palace park is only a small part of Het Loo Royal Estate.
