Summer Palace

the whole summer filled with summer activities

Are you coming to play too?

From Saturday, July 6 to Sunday, September 1, Paleis Het Loo turns into a real summer palace. In the summer the gardens are a large playground and there are many extra activities. It all starts at the stables square where you can race with hobbyhorses and cars. Via the XL hopscotch path you can then proceed towards the palace and gardens. Here you will find all kinds of outdoor games. From archery and ring throwing to a well-stocked games stall with Jenga or Mikado. Do you see the balance flower? Who can keep balancing the longest? Or participate in a seed bomb making workshop during the weekends.

And don't miss the Princes and Princesses Days and the Summer Concerts!

And that in addition to all the palace has on offer daily. From audio routes in the palace and a view from the palace roof, to the exhibitions in the museum. You will see The House of Orange exhibition about the history from William of Orange to Willem-Alexander and the temporary exhibition Bloom. The Junior Palace is of course also open!
