Haarlem

Once a major North Sea trading port surrounded by defensive walls, Haarlem retains its medieval character with picturesque cobblestone streets and gabled houses. With monuments dating back nearly 800 years, it‘s no wonder so many great artists of the Golden Age wanted to capture its beauty and atmosphere. Not only is it home to some of the best museums and world-famous artwork in the Netherlands, it is also regularly voted one of the best shopping cities in the country.
