“impressive construction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This cathedral is really impressive, keeping in mind that it so old. The organ is beautiful and sounds impressive. The atmosphere is pure and make you think of forever gods and transient humans. This objective is a "have to visit" if you go to Haarlem.

“A large dollop of beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The cathedral is really magnificent. The big organ is very impressive, The wooden ceiling is a pleasure to behold. This church comes with a bit of science. Foucaults pendulum is set up here. And on some saturdays it is used. The saturdays in december will all have the pendulum aswinging

“Must See in Haarlem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We arrived and the church had just closed for tours, but they invited us back for a free organ concert that night. This organ had been played on by Mozart and Handel. Beautiful! Inspiring!

“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.
