This beautiful lightly tinted mill is located in the middle of the Eng. The mill was rebuilt in 2006 less than a kilometer from where its predecessor stood until 1930.

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.
