servants quarters

See Huis Doorn from a different perspective: step into the shoes of the last German emperor’s staff and visit the rooms which he never entered . 

Imagine yourself back in time as you walk down the narrow service staircase to the rooms hidden behind the rich interiors. 

Behind the scenes: working for the lord of the manor. 

Discover what it took to keep a household running in a large mansion and what social relations were like.  

Find out all about the servants, their jobs and visit the places where their lives took place. See the rooms of the emperor’s and empress’s personal servants and personal physician, visit the room where the silver was polished, the uniform room and the apartment of one of Wilhelm II’s second wife’s daughters. 

History comes to life

The belongings and furniture of the emperor's servants were stored for decades. Now they are back in the attic, bringing history to life in the servants' original rooms.
