This last home of the German Kaiser had been maintained in a perfect way. Many personal items give You a good inside view on how Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert von Preußen aka. Wilhelm II lived after he left Germany. All in all impressive and worthwhile to visit. Wilhelm II is buried in the garden. His ancestors are buried in Berlin.... More

Another glimpse of interesting history. Low key museum, well preserved artifacts. You must do a tour, and the tour was only in Dutch with a brief english information card to guide you along. Our guide, Henk, did provide us with a few minutes of English information in each area, and we were very grateful for that as it allowed us... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from Huis Doorn (we were taken there as a suggested place to visit) but it proved to be so very interesting. The place is bursting with history, the significance of which is astounding. The guide that showed us around spoke excellent English and the whole group were transfixed with the explanations given. This place... More

It was a very hot day when we visited the huis, with our German twin town friends. But the guide was very good and informative.

Huis (House) Doorn is a historical landmark where one can see how the last German Emperor lived with his closest family members and his household. The house and its content is remarkably well kept and intact. It breathes history. The park surrounding the house is large and beautiful. Located near the house one can have lunch at the 'Oranjerie', a... More

This is the last home of the last Kaiser. A tour of the house shows how he and his family lived between 1918 and his death in 1941. The grounds are beautiful and the orangery has been converted to a bar and restaurant. Photography is allowed and there is a small shop. Non-Dutch speakers should ask for the English tour,... More

As a European history buff, I was very excited to make the trek out to Doorn to visit the estate of the last German emperor in exile, Kaiser Wilhelm II. It is a moderately short train and bus ride from Amsterdam out to the small town of Doorn (a train to Utrecht and a bus from there). The surroundings en... More

Museum Huis Doorn has three tours every hour during opening times. The guide tells interesting tales about Wilhelm, a German emperor that sought asylum in the Netherlands coming from (WW I) war torn Germany in 1918. The emperor came to Doorn in 1921 and lived there until his death in 1941. His first wife was sick and died within a... More

The outside wall with the gate into the castle area looks like a real castle wall but the castle self is actually a manor house with a lot of big windows. Visiting the house is only by guided tour. The story about the former resident, the last German Emperor, Willem II was interesting. This manor house is also a national... More
