Museum Huis Doorn & Pavilion
In my opinion Huis Doorn is one of the best and fascinating museum in the world and the last home of Kaiser Wilhelm.
The Kaiser went from Spa to Holland and went into exile. He first stayed at Amerongen Castle before purchasing Huis  Doorn. He was able to bring large quantities of his possessions from the various palaces in Germany. There is hardly anything on display in the house that does not have a fascinating history.
There is an interesting photographic database available on their website.
Opening Hours:
Tuesday to Friday from 13.00 - 17.00 hours.
Saturday and Sunday from 12.00 - 17.00 hours.
In July and August also open on Tuesday from 13.00 - 17.00 hours.

Amerongen Castle
Amerongen Castle was built between 1674 and 1680 on the site of a medieval castle that had been burned down by the French in 1673. The gardens still contain historic elements such as a conservatory dating from the 1890s. In 1918 the former German Kaiser Wilhelm II signed his abdication here and stayed till 1920, when he moved to Huis Doorn.
