The park was of decisive importance to the imperial couple when purchasing the House. It not only afforded the ex-emperor privacy and freedom of movement, but also useful exercise.
The emperor not only had a keen interest in gardening, but also loved to do forestry work himself. He has the park constantly beautified, including two rose gardens and a pinetum. It became his great pride.
One of the former rose gardens has been completely restored: the Auguste Victoria Garten. The garden is named after Wilhelm II's first wife. The rose garden is free to visit. The garden contains many different types of roses and also beautiful rhododendrons.
With the park audio tour you can take a walk on the estate of Huis Doorn. The audio tour provides background information on the ancient history of the park. The walk takes one hour and provides information about the historical stratification and the various partial gardens of ex-Emperor Wilhelm II.
