Pavillion de Witte/von Wied, Scheveningen

The Pavillion Von Wied/ The Royal Pavillion/ Pavillion de Witte) is a retreat in Scheveningen. It was built in 1827 on the orders of King Willem I as a birthday present for his wife Wilhelmina of Prussia. after a neo classisist design by A. Nootendorp. The initial name was 'The Royal Pavillion but afterwards it was named after the new owner, Wilhelmina's granddaughter Fürstin Marie von Wied, so the pavillion was renamed Pavillion von Wied.

In 1926 an extensive restauration & enlargement started by architect J. Limburg. 3/4 of the ground was sold to N.V. Bouw- en Exploitatie-Maatschappij. Here 20 mansions were built by architect Yme Bouma, followed by 22 more by J. Kooyman.

In 1994 the building changed again, by architect Wim Quist. Under the pavillion he constructed the Museum 'Sculptures at Sea'. The original pavillion belongs to Sociëteit De Witte and is also used as party and meeting center.
