Winter Paleis Het Loo

From 15 December, Paleis Het Loo will pull out the stops with ‘Winter Paleis Het Loo’. This year there is a new formula on and around an enchanted Stables Square. The Harnessing area will be transformed into an enchanted area, where the individual components of a festively laid table will be magnified as eye-catchers and explained. From enormous pies, skillfully folded serviettes, spun sugar pieces and royal desserts to flower arrangements, menus and dinner services. All this, under the atmospheric lighting of candles and candelabras.

Near the presentations of Winter Palace Het Loo there were Dutch recipes and DIY's. Please download the English translations!
