The largest international community in the Haarlem area

ExpatsHaarlem is the broadest international community & media platform in the Haarlem area and is about easing and enriching the life of internationals.

News, information, blogs, events, services. 

We provide news, information and articles and organize events for expats – and Dutchies too-. We arrange special offers and discounts for our readers. We offer a Housing Service and have a Partnership Program with professionals for services in fields such as Dutch Language, Parenting, Legal and Financial Services, Going out and Wellness.

ExpatsHaarlem also organises the annual Experience Haarlem Fair and many seminars, workshops, comedies and meetups to inform, connect and support the local expat community.

Founded and run by internationals

We are internationals (expats and international oriented Dutchies) ourselves, who landed in Haarlem for study/work/love. Willing to meet and let meet other internationals for 12 years we have been organizing meetups for our expats group, myHaarlem.

With that group being centered around organizing meetups, we felt (and as we learned from our members, not just we) the need for a little extra. More and more we signaled the need of practical and local information, the pleasure of reading and sharing lifestyle articles and the wish to connect with other internationals also when not in the occasion of going to events.

Where expats & Dutchies connect


Driven by our own and our members experiences and suggestions we ambitiously envisioned not a group website or a social media group with events but a community with more platforms that could cover the informational needs, engage conversations, facilitate interaction and organize events.

The only broader community in the Haarlem area.
A place where expats – and Dutchies – really connect.
To improve expat life and have fun together!

For and together with you

As it turned out, our enthusiasm was contagious: a lot of members joined our team to write or organize events with us. More ideas, more information, more to work on.

So, here we are now. expatsHaarlem: from expats for expats. Willing to move forwards, for and together with YOU!

Our network  is composed by organisations from various industries such as local authories,  financial services, relocation, education, entertainment, career development, legal services, insurances, real estate and more. Here are some of them:
