“Incredible organ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This church sits on the main square and has one of the largest organs in the world which 10-year old Mozart played on. The pamphlet (available in a variety of languages) is extremely helpful for a self-guided tour. This church is well worth seeing on your visit to Haarlem.

“Nice church, great organ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Nice church to walk around in. If the organ is in use it is totally worth stopping for a listen. I would highly recommend reading Rick Steves book about the various aspects of the church. Without the Rick Steves book, I would only give this church 4 stars.

We went inside this old church and were amazed by the history, the details, the crypts in the floors. Absolutely worth seeing!

“Beautiful catherdral, one of a kind”

The nice mixture of architectural styles with especially accents from Islamic art make this church well worth the walk. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. The outside is also quite stunning.
