VERY nice! Thank you so much for sharing them with us. I'm assuming the home is now a museum.

It indeed is. They are experiencing some problems now. Because the cuts in the cultural section it might be that they will not be open anymore. See: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world ... 26444.html

The site of the museum: http://www.huisdoorn.nl/eng/

Worth a visit!

Kind regards,

Maurice

I understand, but could be wrong that many of his artifacts as "Kaiser", unforms, decorations etc are still stored there but may not be on public display.

I think I've read in a biography of the Kaiser that a great many (if not all those in the palaces in Berlin) of his uniforms were stolen/destroyed in the turmoil of November 1918. It was one of his great regrets he couldn't take them with him into exile, though I think he may have needed a much larger house to store them all in!

What ever the size of the house, he did manage to store a incredible 59 train wagon loads inside.
And according to the museum, all is still there :-)

I doubt ALL content of the trainslorries is inside the house...perhaps there is a storage somewhere. Who knows, with the rebuilding of the Stadtschloss in Berlin, they will be able to exhibit some of his his belongs there.

I was told in December 2019 by one of the volunteers who work at House Doorn that most of the contents of the train wagons is stored inside a very large secret bunker complex somewhere in the Netherlands.
Only recently they finished describing & categorizing every item, and the plan seems to be to create various exhibitions of these items open to the public within the next few years.
