Full description

Your morning or afternoon in Haarlem will start at your hotel in downtown Haarlem or if you travel to Haarlem from elsewhere at a meeting point near the train station. Explore at a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel, and learn all about this town.

See the houses of the Frans Hals Museum, a museum dedicated to preserving the works of this Golden Age painter. Immerse yourself in the lively shopping streets and square market.

Wandering through the streets of Haarlem will take you back to the glory days of Haarlem in the 16th and 17th Century, but you will also encounter some great modern architecture built no more than a few years ago. Visit the famed Saint Bavo Church, whose construction started in the middle ages. One of its famous visitors has been Mozart, who played the famous Müller organ at the age of 10. Other famous composers who played the organ are Händel and Mendelsohn.
