Interesting WW1 site
Sep 2021 • Couples
With restricted opening hours and the pavillion closed at certain days you are well-advised to plan your trip. Book a ticket in advance. The tour takes you through various rooms on a audio tour. Well-informed staff are present in each room. Only the first floor of the house is open during Corona measures. Visitors take the stairs to cloak room in the basement and museum rooms on the first floor. Texts and audio tour are to the point and informative.

The Kaiser's place
Mar 2020
Huis Doorn is most famous for the fact that after the first world war it became the refuge for the overthrown German Emperor. He spend his final days there choping wood. It really is nice to see..

Enchanting, Informative, Amazing & Historic
Sep 2019 • Couples
This beautiful and historic house / museum has been on my list for several years and I eventually traveled over to see it . I was definitely not disappointed. It was Kaiser William II home in The Netherlands when he abdicated after WW1. It’s not a palace but a home from home for him. It’s like he simply walked away and closed the door. Everything is in place , his clothes, furnishings and even his slippers. Great and historic art of the period and this was made electric by our superb guide Louise . A Dutch gracious lady with so many wonderful anecdotes to tell with a wicked sense of humour. Definitely for fans of European history and Royalty , Huis Doorn is simply a must see. Enjoy some nice food in the Orangerie near by . No 50 bus directly from Utrecht central station straight to Doorn Centrum. 5 minutes walk to the Huis , look out for road signs . Daily from 13.00 but not on Monday’s.

Over priced, small portions. Rip off!
Apr 2019
We visited the Orangerie restaurant before visiting the house.
We were extremely disappointed at the decieving menu. When the food arrived the porions were very small although the prices were higher than most restraunts. The food was very basic and actually all frozen of prepacked which only had to be put together in the kitchen. The place itself is very nice but very noisey as there are no soft furnishing and the service is inexperienced.
Do NOT reccommend. Left feeling ripped off.

Shame the tour is only in Dutch
Dec 2018 • Friends
This is an important house. It is hard to understamd why there isn't a recording of the tour talk available in English and German. Surely with information only in Dutch they are limiting their audience. Such a shame.

Great tour of Kaiser Wilhelm’s house
Jul 2018 • Couples
Huis Doorn was bought by Kaiser Wilhelm 2 of Germany after he was forced to abdicate and sent in exile in 1920. It is chocful of luxury items which were brought from his palaces in Germany by 59 train cars. Especially also a large collection of gorgeous paintings. He liked the house dor its large grounds where he could chop wood.

There are guided tours on the top of the hour by very knowledgeable guides, cost 12 euros per persoon. There is also a museum shop on site and a restaurant in one of the side buildings.
