Huis Doorn Specifications

by DanSchwarz

How many rooms are in the Huis Doorn Manor House and in the Gate House? Did the Kaiser's staff live there also. My grandfather Otto Schwarz, German musician performed there weekly in 1923 with a small ensemble. What room would music have been performed in? I am presently writing my grandfather's biography, and would appreciate a photo of the manor house, and possibly the music room to use in the book. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Daniel Schwarz, Albany, New York, USA

-
Huis Doorn has an enormous collection of uniforms all worn by the Kaiser himself.
You can see that the left sleeve is considerably shorter than the right one.

Even though he lost his empire, the Kaiser used to dress in uniform every night for dinner.

In the footsteps of Kaiser Wilhelm II

by Roeffie

Doorn is a small town that lies in the forestland of the "Utrechtse Heuvelrug" It is a nice quiet town with lots of natural beauty surrounding the town.

The most known building in the town is "Huis Doorn"

This is where Kaiser Wilhelm II spend a great deal of his life after Germany was defeated by the Allies in WW I. The people of Germany put the blame on him for loosing the war and on the 9th of november 1918 the people declared Germany to be a republic.
The emperor was exciled. The Netherlands was neutral in WW I, so he fled to the Netherlands.

It is a remarkable castle. It is rather small, but is completely filled with objects brought here by the last emperor of Germany
