Paleis Soestdijk (Soestdijk Palace, the Netherlands)

Soestdijk Palace is a former palace of the Dutch royal family. It consists of a central block and two wings.

 

Although named after the village of Soestdijk, which is largely in the municipality of Soest, the Soestdijk Palace is just north of the border in the municipality of Baarn in the province of Utrecht. It was the home for over six decades of the late Queen Juliana and her husband, the late Prince Bernhard until their deaths in 2004.
