The Huis Doorn experience
House Doorn Museum, the former residence of the last German Emperor Wilhelm II, is an international attraction and well worth a visit if you’re looking for a great day out during your stay in the Netherlands. The estate is located in the heart of the Netherlands, not far from Utrecht, and is the perfect destination for a day trip or an outing where you can enjoy nature and culture hand in hand. After visiting the historic house museum and pavilion, with its exhibition on the Netherlands during the First World War, you can finish your trip with a walk through the estate and gardens. At the Orangery, you can also enjoy lunch or a drink on the terrace overlooking the beautiful house and park.
Near the cosy village of Doorn and a stone’s throw away from the magnificent forests of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park, House Doorn is also an ideal starting point for a walking or cycling trip through this area, which is known for its stately houses, castles, parks and woods.
A visit to House Doorn is suitable for young and old and is a fantastic cultural and educational day out for all the family. It is highly recommended for those with a love of history and heritage, castles, palaces and royal families, as well as for people with an interest in the First World War.
