Museums, Must Sees in NL, Netherlands

Explore Paleis Soestdijk

Whilst a new purpose is being considered for Soestdijk Palace, it is open to visitors. And it’s well worth a visit.

It used to be the working palace of Queen Juliana, the mother of Princess Beatrix, the grandmother of the current king of the Netherlands.

Paleis Soestdijk

From the smoke stained walls of Prince Claus’s study to the family photos of princesses in their childhood prime, the palace gives a fascinating, historical glimpse into the life of the Dutch monarchy.

The grounds are beautiful to walk around and there’s a speurtocht for the children, which gets them uncovering places and facts about the palace and the family that lived in it.

If you haven’t been then go whilst you can!

I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking….
