Follow the trail of the Oranje Nassaus in Friesland!

The Frisii had no idea how their unorganized region, existing of many Frisian strains would develop when they made a pack with the Romans in 12 before Christ. It was the end of the Frisian freedom in 1498, and also the end of the governmental chaos: The German duke Albrecht von Sachsen had been appointed by king Maximiliaan and became hereditary ruler of Friesland. 

The Frisian Nassaus were in control from 1587 to 1747. They were the descendants of Jan de Oude van Nassau-Diez, a brother of freedom fighter Willem van Oranje. You will find a statue of the most popular ‘Oranje’ governor, Willem Lodewijk (1560-1620), a cousin of Willem van Oranje, in front of one of the palaces of Leeuwarden. The Frisian call it ‘’Us Heit’’ (our father).

Visit Heerenveen, Parkland Oranjewoud, former country seat of the Frisian Nassaus.

Tips

Parkland Oranjewoud
Visit the village Oranjewoud near Heerenveen, which was the former country seat of the Frisian Nassaus with incredible houses and beautiful gardens. The Frisian Nassaus bought moorland east of Heerenveen en founded there the pleasure palace with park Oranjestein. This is when the development of Oranjewoud started as a location of the Frisian nobility. The original country seat of the Nassaus was demolished in 1803. The neo-classic land house Oranjewoud with its beautiful gardens had been established on the same place in 1830. You are able to visit the estate Oranjewoud and De Overtuin. Also nice to visit are the famous museum Willen van Haren and the Museum Belvédère in Heerenveen.

Paleis Het Loo Apeldoorn
Visit the National Mseum Paleis Het Loo in Apeldoorn, the Versailles of the Dutch. The hunting lodge located on the outstretched hunting domain of the Oranjes on the Veluwe had been established on behalf of governor Willem the 3rd, son in law of the English king and was finished in 1686. The hunting lodge became even more extensive after Willem the 3rd became king of England. Queen Wilhelmina (1880-1962), grandmother of Queen Beatrix lived for quite some time in Het Loo. A part of the palace has been opened for public since 1972. The palace and its gardens have been restored since 1984 and are open for the public the whole year through.
