Huis Doorn is a fascinating place that brings to life the pitiful end of the Kaiser and his family. HOWEVER: seeing that the Dutch were among the LEAST involved of all Europeans in the First World War and the denouement of the Kaiser's reign, it is ironic that, other than the odd guided tour in German, there are no non-Dutch...

The palace is beautiful. Can only be visited by joining a guided tour, max 15 people, 9 EUR pp. This is really a reasonable price, the rooms are beautifully styled, the (dutch) guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. Don;t forget the beautiful park. Would recommend the palace to all from the age of 12 and above.

A must visit. The house which was sold to the German Emperor by Audrey Hepburn's grandmother, is particularly well maintained and very much alive with masses to see. Excellent value. The guided tour is in Dutch but detailed explanations of each room in English are available. Photos without flash are allowed. A genuine warm welcome from everyone involved i.e. from... More

We'd traveled by car and had to ask about the location - there weren't many signs - but finally found the parking lot not far from the estate grounds. We didn't take a tour but simply wandered...

The house is decorated as the emperor left it. It even as an elevator, so even people in wheelchairs can visit the toplevels. It is a small palace, but fantastically decorated with paintings, lavish curtains and antiques.

We visited Huis Doorn because, if the Dutch government has its way, you won't be able to after May 2013. I had never visited the house before, but it had been on my list for a couple of years. I was not disappointed! Huis Doorn is a country house acquired by Wilhelm II, the last German emperor, after he had... More
