Sinterklaas

Sinterklaas and his Pieten arrive by steamboat and moors on the Spaarne on 18 November in Haarlem.

A fun and festive activity for the whole family, starting from 13.00, Sinterklaas and his Pieten arrive on his famous Steamboat along the Spaarne River coming from the direction of Heemstede.

As usual, there will be lots of fun this year with many singing, dancing and giant happy Pieten. After Sinterklaas has set foot on land, he steps on the back of his trusted horse, Amerigo to make a tour through the city. Arriving at the Grote Markt a huge reception awaits him and the mayor will greet him. He is expected to arrive at the Grote Markt at 14.15.

It is advised to get to the Spaarne and the Grote Markt early to get a good spot with a good view.
