A short visit.............................

Apeldoorn is a large city of approx 155,000 people.

It is located about 80kms east of Amsterdam.

My reason for visiting here, was to visit Het Loo Palace, so what I saw of Apeldoorn, was the Train station, and the sights looking out of the Bus window.
I saw the monument where the tragic Queens Day accident happened. So sad, lots of wreaths there. I also saw lots of lovely homes and gardens.

    Dee, lovely little page about Apeldoorn and the Het Loo Palace. Interesting bus story. Usually Dutch people speak English quite well.

    Hiya, glad you liked the Palace. It is a great to walk in & around it. Too bad the 1st bus driver couldn't understand you. :( Next time you should go to the monkeyzoo. :)

    Certainly impressive. How to call a palace "home"? think I prefer the house on the cover page.
