Temporarily open

The Stables Square is open during Spirit of Winter and Winterpaleis Het Loo from 15 December until 6 January. The palace is closed until 2021 due to renovation. The gardens are open from April until September.

30 March - 30 September

Paleis Het Loo visitors can walk the 'Orange Trail' starting at the end of the Baroque Dutch garden. This walk partly leads through the Palace park. The Orange Trail takes you along the ponds, various pavilions and royal Boathouses.

Life at court

Life at court did not only take place in the palace but also in the gardens and the palace park, where the Oranges would walk and seek diversion on and round the ponds. In the early 19th century, the park was replanted. From then it reflected the English example for romantic landscape parks, with winding paths and many different varieties of trees. The park is in sharp contrast with the constructed 17th century palace gardens that are strictly symmetrical. This Orange trail leads you past noteworthy spots in this beautiful park.

accessibility

Your entrance ticket to museum Paleis Het Loo also entitles you to take a walk through Palace park Het Loo, part of Het Loo Royal Estate from April to October. The entrance to the palace park is behind the Colonnades, at the rear of the palace garden. You can use this entrance to the palace park until 3.30 pm. The walk takes approximately one hour.

If you want to take a longer walk through the park you will need a day ticket for the Palace park. These are available at the vending machine near the parkinglot of Paleis Het Loo.
