The history of the Netherlands during the First World War comes to life in Huis Doorn. In the museum you will learn about the life and possessions of the German ex-Kaiser Wilhelm II, who lived here from 1920 to 1941. After the loss of the First World War, he was granted political asylum in the neutral Netherlands in 1919. The interior of Huis Doorn comes from the imperial palaces in Berlin and Potsdam. Beautiful furniture, paintings, carpets and silver made it possible for the royal asylum seeker to continue to live according to his status. They formed a decor of European allure. A court protocol in pocket format took place daily in the small village of Doorn. The original furnishings are largely intact and offer an authentic image of international royal living. Huis Doorn is also the official place of remembrance of the First World War in the Netherlands. The exhibition 'Between two fires' is on view in the former garage of Wilhelm II.
