The Grote Markt is the central point in town so you will pass through dozens of times during your stay here. Full of lovely gabled Dutch buildings - this is just one of them

The town hall, a rectangular building with battlements and towers, was built in a Dutch Renaissance style. The façade is displayed in a classicist style. We went through the gate and visited the courtyard. In the courtyard is a bronze sculpture of a globe.

The town hall of Haarlem is a fine building, very picturesque and all, but it’s hard to ignore the enormous church on the same square dominating everything and everyone miles away. Try to focus on Stadhuis and forget about its big neighbour. There is at...More
