In Haarlem we do everything to make your visit to us as safe and responsible as possible. One of the measures taken is pressure distribution. If not everyone goes shopping and comes to store at the same time, then we are better able to apply the prescribed 1.5 meter measure.
To help you with this, we have roughly mapped out the peak and off-peak hours for Haarlem center. Consult the schedule below to plan your visit to the city center.
Prefer to store online? Many stores now have a webshop or you can order from them via a DM on their instagram/facebook account. Please contact the store if you have any questions about this. You can also visit the collection platform Haarlemse Winkels, where you will find a large selection of all kinds of local web stores.
On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, it is quiet to fairly busy in the center of Haarlem. We invite you to store in the center of Haarlem precisely on these days, with the mornings being the quietest. Look for the space and come early!
Our visitor peak is on Saturdays between 1pm and 4pm. Please try to avoid shopping during this time slot or only do necessary errands.
