staff quarters

See Huis Doorn from a different perspective: step into the shoes of the staff of the last German emperor Wilhelm II and visit the rooms he never visited.

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

Behind the scenes: working for the high lord

Discover what it took to run a household in a large country house and what the social relations were like.

Learn all about the staff, their work and visit the places where their lives took place. See the rooms of the chambermaid, chamberlain, court physician and the silver polishing room, the uniform room and the apartment of one of the daughters of Wilhelm II's second wife.

History comes alive

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 original servants' rooms.
