Huis Doorn was first built in the 13th century. It was rebuilt in the 14th century, after it was destroyed. It was again rebuilt in the 19th century to its present-day form. The gardens were designed in the 19th century. After World War I, Wilhelm II bought the house, where he lived in exile from 1920 until his death in 1941. He is buried in a coffin within a mausoleum in the gardens. After the German occupation in World War II, the house was seized by the Dutch government as hostile property.
Huis Doorn is now a national museum and a national heritage site. The interior of the house has not been changed since Wilhelm II died. Every year in June, German monarchists come to Doorn to pay their respects to the emperor. In 2012, the museum had 25,000 visitors.

Winter/Christmas market like all the others. But, not too crowded and the setting is alright. Restroom space is limited 🙄
A historical snapshot from the time of the German Kayser, this state house preserves the memories in a mint condition house. Tours are well organized and in every room volunteer staff is availing themself to give ample explanation. Check the special fork on the dinner table!
