The gardens of Paleis Het Loo have opened up to the public again and the 'Music on Sunday' editions have resumed as well. The National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands (NJO) is the purveyor of these open-air Sunday concerts, sending different musicians each week. Every week a music ensemble plays a concert at the Colonnades in the back of the gardens. These concerts have a light character and take place at 12:00 and at 14:00h. In bad weather, the concerts may be moved to the stables. Take a look at the website of Paleis Het Loo for the exact programming (Dutch only).

The gardens of Paleis Het Loo were laid out in the 17th century as a baroque garden by order of King-Stadtholder William III and his wife Queen Mary II, the founders and first residents of Paleis Het Loo. It is a Dutch Baroque garden, symmetrical with many parterres, impressive fountains and historic planting. The garden was intended to give status and prestige to Willem and Mary and was intended to impress their visitors. Read more about the gardens on the website of Paleis Het Loo (Dutch only).
