Paleis Huis ten Bosch - Den Haag

Marengo 01-27-2006 08:30 AM

Some images of the Oranjezaal (Orange Hall) in Palace Huis ten Bosch. Princess Amalia had this hall made to honour her husband, stadholder Frederik-Hendrik ;de stededwinger' (cityforcer? as he reconquered some dutch cities from the spanish). You can spot him in the carriage, with the Orange cloth around him. Amalia and her daughters are looking from the side. Countess Luana was baptised here.

The palace wasn't really used before Beatrix lived there. Juliana used it on some occassions, but not to often. Wilhelmina used it from time to time, not to often either and only Queen Sophie (1st wife of King Willem III) actually used it as her main residence.

After the war the trees were gone:

On 26 March the city counsil of The Hague will vote about new plans for the enlargement of Huis ten Bosch Palace. The enlargements will be 'conserving' the original palace etc. And the three guests/staff buildings will be built on a spot close to the present guest building.

I am sure they will miss her house, much more private for the kids!

Marengo 01-29-2013 05:26 PM

The location Huis ten Bosch is also quite privatate. From the Rijksstraatweg (a busy road between Leiden and The Hague) you can only see the roof top of the backside of the palace in autumn and winter, when the trees lost their leafs. The entry roads are connected to more quiet streets with hardly any view of the palace too.

The park around the palace must be slightly smaller than the private part of the Eikenhorst, but it is large enough. The main difference must be that there will be much more rooms for representation & staff. The private part will be the entire 'Wassenaarse vleugel' , the wing on the right.

Tarlita 01-29-2013 05:52 PM

Marengo what a treaure you are for posting these wonderful pics. I thank you they are wonderful.

An Ard Ri 01-29-2013 05:55 PM

I believe that the English translation of Huis ten Bosch is the "House in the Woods",so I'm sure it will be private enough.
