all of them haarlemmers


Experience 1000 years of the city's history and discover how the inhabitants of the Spaarne cared for, fought, mourned, worked, played sports, believed, made love and partied.

Meet Kenau Hasselaer, Garbrant Josten, Sara Boeda, Pim Mulier and others Haarlemmers and empathize with their stories. One was born here, the other has found a new home here. Haarlem attracted many migrants for centuries. They helped build the city and made it great with their beer, textiles and shipping.

meet Haarlemmers from the past and present, from world famous to ordinary. And see the city through their eyes.
