The innercity of Haarlem hasn’t lost its old historic character. The monumental city centre is full with little courtyards, squares, canals and churches. Especially the Great Church (or St. Bavo Church) is a beautiful piece of architecture. The surrounding flower fields are just a bike ride away from the city center. Join a city walk or sit on one of the beautiful terraces in the city center.
