Description

The influences of the Royal family are clearly felt and visible in Apeldoorn and the surrounding area. Wandering through the woods of Kroondomein Het Loo, you can see and experience with your own eyes the influence that the royal family has exerted on the area over the past hundreds of years. The route leads you right through the Veluwe. You will pass through the center of Apeldoorn, along the Orange Park, through Buurlo and Hoog Soeren.

In order to be able to hunt and compete with country residences of other European monarchs, Stadtholder William III bought the medieval hunting lodge Het Loo(now called'Het Oude Loo\\\') including surrounding buildings, forests, waterways and lands at the end of the seventeenth century. Due to the international status of William III and his wife Mary Stuart, the palace and its gardens were expanded in the years that followed. After the death of the king-stadholder, the palace was used by his successors as a hunting lodge and summer residence. Due to the different residents that the palace has known over the hundreds of years, the appearance of the palace has also changed. During a major restoration, the palace was restored to its original seventeenth-century state and then opened as a museum in 1984.
