“Short Holland break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Outside as well as inside, this church (or is it a cathedral?) is well worth visiting. Especially the drawinf of the tallest man (2m64) and the shortest (64 cm) caught the attention of my 1m86 grandson....

“Gorgeous from the outside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

An alluring, well-preserved Cathedral in a perfect location within the Grote Markt. Really stands out due to its momentous size compared to the smaller, picturesque warehouses surrounding it. Shame I didn't have the time to enter

A visit to this church costs 2,50 euros, but it's worth it. The building is really impressive and interesting.

“One of the nicest churches in the North of the Netherlands”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

The church looks nice from inside and from outside. It is not as spectacular as the Roman catholic churches or cathedrals in the more southern countries of Europe, which is not surprising as during the reformation most decorations in Dutch churches were destroyed.

Still if you go to this church then there is still enough to see, I went in for free when I went, other times there is a small fee, but that is worth it. If you are in Haarlem then this chuch should not be missed.
