Following the deaths of Princess Juliana, former Queen of the Netherlands, and Prince Berhard, in 2004, Soestdijk Palace in Utrecht has remained empty.
But now, Made By Holland, which bid for the chance to reinvent the royal residence and won, has announced plans for the country estate.
According to the organization's website, the upstairs will be turned into a small hotel, perfect for those travelers dreaming of a royally rela getaway, while other wings of the palace will feature rooms for private events as well as exhibition space, which, according to Dutch News, will highlight "Dutch enterprise and innovation," in fields such as architecture, agriculture, and the environment.
Made By Holland's proposal also included restoring historic landmarks on the grounds, replacing the old police barracks with 65 freestanding homes, launching a variety of food and beverage options in the Orangery, and opening up the formerly private woodland grounds to the public.
But don't start planning your vacation just yet. Transforming a 17th-century hunting lodge takes time. Dutch News reports that the project will take 10 to 15 years to complete.
