Dolhuys Haarlem

The Museum of the mind

In this unique, historical building in the center of Haarlem you will meet special spirits: people who function differently than average. Be inspired by their fascinating life story! The Dolhuys is a half-hour walk away and the Carlton Square also has bikes that make you feel comfortable through the center of Haarlem!



The music stage of Haarlem

Patronaat is one of the ten major pop venues in the club circuit of the Netherlands. It is located at the Zijlsingel, near the Grote Markt in Haarlem. Many concerts and parties take place here. Within 20 minutes you are from the Carlton Square at the Patronaat.


Uiltje Bar/ brewery

The thing that strikes you immediately are the no less than thirty (!) beer taps in the brick wall. A large blackboard above these taps tells you exactly which thirty beers are available at that specific time. In addition to the beer from brewery Het Uiltje (the owl) - an average of seven beers on tap - you can also make a selection from unusual special beers from all over the world. A tasting flight of four special beers of your choice is a further option.
