Sights

Paleis Soestdijk


3762DT Baarn

The Crown Prince and his Russian wife had Soestdijk completely renovated into a real summer palace. Everything was decorated in Empire style with two extra side wings. During the Second World War, Soestdijk Palace housed many foreign soldiers, but when peace returned, the Royal family also returned to the palace. When Princess Beatrix was honored as queen in 1980, the palace no longer became a royal residence. Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard lived there until their death in 2004. Pending a new use, the palace was temporarily opened to the public.

Drakensteyn

Drakensteyn
3749AS Baarn

The history of Drakensteyn dates back to 1360, when this castle was first written about. In 1634 Ernst van Reede became the owner of Drakensteyn. His son Gerard had a new, octagonal house built in 1640. The house was then recognized as a ridderhofstad and Gerard became a knight. He then also built a presbytery, a school, a mill and an inn in the village.
