Through time

Ever since the seventeenth century, Haarlem has been a popular place to live − with its scenic streets and its setting by the dunes. It has inspired many artists. Gerrit Berckheyde painted numerous views of Haarlem’s Grote Markt with St Bavo’s church and the Town Hall. Jacob van Ruisdael is famous for his Haarlem vignettes: panoramic landscapes with St Bavo’s church rising on the horizon below a cloud-filled sky.

In autumn 2023, the Frans Hals Museum hosts the first show ever to focus on the Haarlem townscape. Find out how the city was portrayed in the seventeenth century. In collaboration with ABC Architectuurcentrum Haarlem you will discover how ideas about urban development and dealing with water have developed. And we challenge you to think about the city in the future.
