“A Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

This cathedral is a beautiful piece of history along with being a gorgeous piece of architecture in the most historic part of town. Take time to look around as well as to go listen to an organ concert. The docents are wonderful and will gladly share with you their knowledge of the old church and its history.

“On the main Square and well worth a vist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

If you like organ music check out the concert dates but it is possible to have a look round the building entry at the side through a small gift shop

“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.
