The story behind the Haarlem Tulpenmanie (Tulip Mania or Tulpomania) started in the Golden Age. Haarlem was without doubt the centre of tulip commerce during the first half of the 17th century and at that time tulips were an exclusive and extremely scarce status symbol. The slow natural multiplication process of tulip bulbs resulted into a high demand but a limited offer. It didn’t take long before the popular tulip bulbs were no longer physically traded but became the subject of security trade. This ‘tulip mania’ resulted into a wild bulb speculation whereby prices went sky-high fetching tens of thousands of euros for a single bulb. A price for which one could buy a complete canal house. At a certain point in time this manic rollercoaster of tulip bulb prices abruptly ended and fortunes were lost, but the tulip trade has luckily survived.
Priscilla Platt has reflected the Tulpomania history in the design and decoration of City Attic Haarlem.
The luxurious bathroom is equipped with a rain shower. Each host gets his or her own slippers and bathrobe*. The slippers can be taken home as a lasting memory of your stay with City Attic Haarlem.
