Koetshuis de Haar - Fairy tales exist
The Chateau de Haar's Koetshuis is on the edge of the famous estate. Anyone entering the gateway can follow the signs on their way to the entrance. In the Grote Laverie we have a beautiful spacious place where you can feel the history of this magnificent location.
Kasteel de Haar itself is the largest castle in the Netherlands. It was rebuilt in neo-Gothic style from 1892 on the ruins of the old castle. Next to the castle is a chapel. For the rebuilding of the castle, the famous architect Pierre Cuypers was employed, who worked for 20 years in close collaboration with his son Joseph Cuypers (from 1892 to 1912). Although the baron and baroness never intended to permanently occupy the castle, it was provided with all the comforts that were available in Europe at the end of the 19th century.
If you like, with a Tangoclub de Haar ticket you can visit the castle's gardens for free. These are open until 17:00.
Live: Trio Tango Extremo
Since its foundation in 2003, Trio Tango Extremo has experienced a development that is at least "remarkable". The orchestra has played on practically all major and small concert stages of the Netherlands and abroad. In August 2009, Tango Extremo was the only non-Argentinian orchestra at the Buenos Aires Tango Festival in Argentina: the most prestigious tango festival in the world. In 2016 and 2017 the orchestra went through Russia. RTV West and RTV Rijnmond sent out a documentary (45 minutes).
The group has earned his place amongst the best Dutch Tango groups. It plays at the most varied stages, ranging from jazz festival to classical concert hall to tango salon. Creativity, the interacting with the dancers and their improvisational ability makes it a popular orchestra.
