Royal Occupations

When the The House of Orange-Nassau lived at Paleis Het Loo they had a lot of staff working for them, for example: lackeys, kitchen-maids, cooks, couriers, a winecellar keeper, a silver keeper and even a clocks custodian to wind up all the clocks. The stables also needed a lot of work. The equerry, coachmen, groomsmen, rig master and farrier kept them running. When the cars came chauffeurs were added to the stable staff.

For the whole family

Family exhibition
This family exhibition tells the story of four occupations: garden woman Roos, coachman Dirk, chauffeur Frits and architect Puck. This is not only fun for kids, but also interesting to adults!

Play Palace Het Loo

Paleis Het Loo has a second palace! A made-to-measure playground has been set up especially for the smaller visitors to the palace.  The play palace and the horse and carriage are made from sustainable robinia wood and fit in perfectly with the wooded surroundings.

The play appliances and underground fully satisfy all safety norms and offer enough challenge and space for around 20-25 children, in the 4-12 age category. The playground is only accessible from one side and thus you can easily keep an eye on everything.
