“A fun place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a must see while in Haarlem. It is typical of the European city centers with the market, the cathedral and the town hall.

“Make sure you have a Herring”

Its a nice open space - when there is a market its always interesting. There is a herring stall there all of the time not far from the Church. Try something - all good quality

Dominates the lively square in the middle of Haarlem. Beautiful chimes from the bells around lunchtime.
