Picturesque streets, quaint old courtyards and the imposing Sint Bavokerk church in the Grote Markt. The centre of Haarlem looks as though it has been painted by one of the Dutch masters, but it is still absolutely a city of today. Whether you’re passionate about culture, a food and wine lover or a shopping enthusiast: Haarlem has something for everyone.
Visit the Teylers Museum in its impressive 18th century building, see the famous works in the Frans Hals Museum or for a more philosophical day, go to Het Dolhuys, the museum of the spirit. There’s also great culinary enjoyment to be had in Haarlem, with a wide variety of restaurants. From the two Michelin stars of De Bokkedoorns to the more simple Het Wachtlokaal next to the hotel. If you enjoy shopping you’re in for a treat; Haarlem has some of the most beautiful shopping streets in the Netherlands, with exclusive boutiques and smart coffee bars. The city also serves as the perfect base for a day out to Amsterdam or a visit to the beaches of Zandvoort and Bloemendaal.
