"Paleis Het Loo" is a palace in Apeldoorn, Netherlands.
The Baroque building was around 1685.

The palace was a residence of the House of Orange-Nassau from the 17th century until the death of Queen Wilhelmina in 1962. The building was renovated between 1976 and 1982. Since 1984, the palace is a state museum open for the general public.

The "Great Garden" lies privately behind.
The characteristic feature of the formal 17th century garden is the strict symmetry of the lay out: perfect symmetry, axial layout with radiating gravel walks, parterres with fountains, basins and statues.

Het Loo Palace garden is an excellent example.

The garden statues, gods and goddesses from the Greek myths, all have to do with the growth and flourishing of the garden and are dedicated to celebrating the achievement of creating such a oasis of delight in an originally arid heath land.
