Haarlem Overview

Haarlem is very close to Amsterdam and definitely worth to visit. The city offers culture, history, pedestriated shopping centers and nightlife can be around every corner.

Staying in Haarlem is a nice alternative to staying in Amsterdam if you are looking for easy access to Amsterdam with hotel in a quaint location.

Have a look around the square itself, one of the most beautiful of its kind in Holland. Come face to face with the late-Gothic St. Bavo’s church, the 13th century townhall, the magnificent Burchers’ hall (Vleeshal) and the Fish auction hall and dream back in time.
Well known museums are : Frans Hals Museum and Teylers Museum (the oldest museum in the Netherlands!).

The romantic city, situated along the river Spaarne, may take pride in a number of qualifications acknowledged throughout the country: Best shopping city of the Netherlands, City of Flowers, City of Jazz and City of Sports, all rolled into one. Less official perhaps is the title Most appetizing City of Holland, but anyone who is expected to choose from the multitude of restaurants, pubs, bistros and outdoor cafes, will undoubtedly become a champion of the legalization of that culinary title. Menu-advice: For starters wander a while through the historical city and retrace the path along small curiosity-shops, the shipchandlers on the Spaarne or the workshops of clockmakers,goldsmiths and stained-glass restorers. A delightful city, in more than one respect.
