Known as the ‘City of flowers’ for its centuries old tradition of tulip growing, Haarlem is one of the Netherlands most attractive cities and a peaceful alternative to Amsterdam. Take a stroll back through time and admire the charm of gabled houses, cobbled pavements and stunning medieval architecture. The 14th Century Town Hall and the impressive St. Bavo church dominate the main square where visitors will find the bustling Grote Markt – a must for tasty local snacks and hunting for bargains. There are also plenty of shops, bars and cafes, to be found in Haarlem’s many intriguing arteries and alleyways.

Art lovers will be impressed by the collection of Dutch Masters at the Frans Hals Museum of Art, whilst the fascinating Dolhuys Museum of Psychiatry takes visitors on a journey through the bizarre world of madness.
