Paleis Het Loo visits Cannenburch Castle: celebrating the House of Orange-Nassau!
Over the years, Cannenburch Castle has often played host to various residents of Paleis Het Loo. After all, the royal family lived just a few miles from Castle Cannenburch so they were fairly regular visitors. The royals received an enthusiastic welcome, not only at the castle but also in the village of Vaassen. Local residents flew the national flag and newspapers eagerly reported on every royal visit. This ‘Orange fever’ resulted in an extensive collection of royal souvenirs, many of which are on display in the various rooms of Cannenburch Castle. The exhibition runs until the end of October 2020 and information about the rooms is available in English and German.
