Explore The City Of Windmills & Tulips

Discover ‘Little Amsterdam’

An old city at heart, Haarlem is perhaps more authentically Dutch than its big, cosmopolitan brother. On our tour, we will cover some of the city’s prominent landmarks:

  • Grote Markt (Grand Market), the square where we start & finish our tour and where traders from all around have shaken hands for over 300 years.
  • The grande St. Bavo Church, a Gothic peace of architecture that dates back to the 13th century.
  • With Haarlem being a very green city, we visit the oldest courtyard of the city, tucked away in an unassuming building complex.
  • The Jopen Church, which has been transformed into a beer brewery.
  • And many more!
