Stop At: Haarlem Railway Station, Stationsplein 11 L, 2011 LR Haarlem The Netherlands

It only takes a safe, convenient and direct 15-minute train ride to escape the city crowds of Amsterdam yet hardly any tourist finds its way to this stately city. Just like most capital cities Amsterdam does not (fully) represent the rest of the country and it is fantastic to see what's the rest of the country is like and to find those amazing views of Holland that you see published everywhere.

The easiest way (and place) to meet your guide is right outside Haarlem Central Station from where you start this exciting walking tour of Haarlem.

In the Dutch 17th century the city was a popular place to live and stay for the rich and powerful. The architectural wealth from those controversial and dark days is still seen all over the city, just like its medieval character with cobble-stoned streets and gabled houses.
