Imagine yourself waiting for your guests at the Nieuwe Gracht, where they could arrive any moment at one of the prettiest canals in the centre of Haarlem.
From this point, it is practically impossible to overlook their destination: the impressive and majestic facade of Huis Barnaart immediately demands attention. This beautiful mansion was once the property of the rich merchant Willem Philip Barnaart, designed and built in 1804 by Amsterdam’s city architect Abraham van der Hart. The building and its interior still display the then fashionable French Empire style of Napoleon Bonaparte – an atmosphere that has been preserved ever since. And thus the platform stairs will lead your guests inside the marble-covered entrance hall at the piano nobile. Here they can feast their eyes on the richly decorated interior. Go through the hall to reach the guest rooms, each with its own character and suitable for both smaller and larger groups. The staff of Huis Barnaart will ensure no one is left wanting and your guest will return home invigorated and inspired at the end of the day.
The inspiring Marble hall is an atmospheric and beautifully decorated room for up to 60 people. Its size is especially suitable for presentations, trainings and seminars. Any event can be combined with a lunch or drink for up to 80 guests in the piano nobile. Host up to 40 guests in the so-called Etrurische Zaal, or choose the Golden Lounge for groups below 30 people. For smaller events up to 20 people, dining is possible in the dining room. All rooms are fully equipped with the necessary modern technology.
