The Emperor's Photographs: The majority of Huis Doorn's photo collection is part of the inventory of German Emperor Wilhelm II. After his abdication in 1918, he had shipped the collection from his castles in Berlin and Potsdam to Doorn in 59 railway-cars. Since 2007 the 12,000 photos housed in this collection are being digitized.
