Op 23 november 1245 kreeg Haarlem van graaf
Willem II stadsrechten en mocht Haarlem zich
een stad noemen.
In 2022, Haarlem will celebrate 777 years of city rights.
In order to experience the 777th anniversary of Haarlem together with all Haarlemmers, a program has been worked on by various institutions in the city. This page brings together those activities. The history of the city can also be read here.
Join us in celebrating Haarlem's birthday and who knows, maybe we'll run into each other somewhere. Congratulations to the birthday city!
