Royal Waiting Room
Take a look
Have you travelled here by train? Stop for a minute at the railway station to admire the elegant building with intricate wooden frames, the attractive platform hood, the balconies and the windows with wedge-shaped upper lights.
What you see is a typical mix of Neo-Renaissance styles with chalet motifs. This station dates from 1874 and is a national monument. Opposite the station is the Amaliapark, named after Prince Hendrik’s first wife.
What makes this very striking building unique is the beautiful Royal Waiting Room, restored in 2014. Once meant for the royal family travelling by train from Soestdijk Palace, it is now a jewel in the Baarn collection of cultural heritage.
