Relive the time of the Queen Mother Emma in the Schagchelstraat Haarlem

The Schagchelstraat goes back in time to a Christmas party in the 19th century. This is, among others, the period of the regency of Queen Emma, ​​the mother of Queen Wilhelmina.

When wandering the streets of Haarlem you will be transported to the late 1800’s early 1900’s, think Dickens, chimney sweeps, laundresses and exquisitely dressed aristocracy.

As you sip on your Glühwein walking the go9lden streets of Haarlem, you will experience a bygone era as various characters relive a different time. You can watch the rope-maker, the falconer and the blacksmith working exhibiting their craft as they would have in the past.

Let yourself be carried away by the singing of the enchanting ladies of dubious morals, traditional festive treats, and drinks at one of Haarlem’s cozy terraces.

When: Saturday, December 7th from 11 am – 6 pm and Sunday, 8th December from 11 am – 6 pm

Where: Haarlem
