Visit the following attractions to admire the exquisite lanterns by DE NOOD and KARELS Outdoor Lighting in person!
Het Loo Palace
In the heart of The Netherlands, on the outskirts of the city of Apeldoorn, lies the over 300-year old Het Loo Palace. Since 1984 this former Royal Palace has been opened to the public as a museum following a thorough restoration.
Affixed to the walls of the palace halls you will be able to find our custom 'het Loo' model lamps, named after the palace. When walking through the palace gardens, you will also see a series of beautiful fountains which were produced by DE NOOD.
Artis is a zoo situated in the heart of Amsterdam. Artis Royal Zoo was founded in 1838. Boasting a number of buildings hailing from the 19th century, Artis Zoo is regarded by many to have a certain charm and historical aspect commonly lacking in other more modern zoos. The zoo premises are dotted with several classical-style lanterns by DE NOOD Group.
Groeneveld Castle in Baarn is an 18th century estate. Programmes, location, buildings, the park and the premises' arrangement are all inextricably connected with each other here. Since the 17th century, regents and merchants would come to such squares in order to enjoy 'the good life', removed from the bustling city: tranquillity, wide open spaces, fresh air, nature, culture, good food, a meeting place for discourse. And still today, some 500,000 visitors a year come to Groeneveld Castle for these very same reasons. Various prominent locations in and around the premises at Groeneveld Castle feature classic-style lanterns produced by DE NOOD.
The Zaanse Schans is a unique residential and business district featuring numerous operational windmills, old crafts, fascinating museums and wonderful green wooden houses. Experience, taste and smell the atmosphere of the 18th and 19th century! Various locations in the park feature classic lanterns produced by DE NOOD and KARELS Outdoor Lighting.
Ammersoyen Castle, an authentic medieval water castle with looming corner towers and a wide moat. It can be said, without exaggerating, that it is one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval castles in The Netherlands - while being situated only a few minutes' drive away from the A2. When following the lane up towards the castle, you will already be able to see the imposing castle from far off. The path is bordered and lit by historical street lanterns produced by KARELS Outdoor Lighting.
Loevestein Castle has a very unique location, situated where the Maas and Waal rivers merge and Gelderland, Brabant and South Holland provinces border one another. This typically Dutch river landscape would be the site where knight Dirc Loef van Horne would build his castle in 1361. But it was not the region's beauty, however, that inspired his choice, but rather its strategic location. It was ideally situated for defensive purposes as well as to collect passage tolls. Since then Loevestein has always served a military function, as the royal prison where Hugo de Groot famously made a daring escape in a book chest and is a part of the Dutch Water Line. This military history has ensured that the region surrounding Loevestein has remained one of the least disturbed cultural landscapes in The Netherlands; a unique place where nature and culture harmonise and complement each other. The premises and surroundings are lit by DE NOOD lanterns and fixtures.
Lange Voorhout, The Hague
Planning on spending a day in The Hague? Then be sure to also visit Lange Voorhout. Lange Voorhout is one of the city's most famous streets and is sometimes also referred to as the 'Koninginneroute' (the Royal route). As of 2007 the route has been completely renewed and renovated. The municipality of The Hague commissioned the development of a new lighting fixture especially for the renovation of the Lange Voorhout. You will recognise these fixtures - which were provided by DE NOOD - by the gold-covered crown and ornamental features. It is a very special lantern design and is definitely worthwhile having a look! Guided tours will be given along the Lange Voorhout until September 9th.
