Members of the Dutch Royal Family lived and worked at Paleis Het Loo for over 300 years. It was their outdoor retreat, and they used the palace as a hunting lodge and holiday home. It was where the Dutch Royal Family received their guests, both for business and pleasure, which is why they also paid great attention to the gardens and stables. They took leisurely strolls through the gardens, admiring the exotic plants and flowers. Even the horses received treatment fit for a king in the stables, located close to the Coach House with its vehicles, cars and sleighs. This rich, royal past can be seen at Paleis het Loo.
