“Everything in Haarlem is centered on the Grote Markt; lots of shops and restaurants”
Review of Grote Markt

Grote Markt

Reviewed 29 June 2018

When you visit Haarlem, the center of everything is the Grote Markt - a very large square in the middle of town. It is very picturesque, has lots of shops to visit as well as a couple of museums, and has many restaurants (some with outdoor cafes if the weather permits). Just take a stroll or do some shopping; the choice is yours.

A fully charged camera is a must for any visit to Haarlem and its focal point, the Grote Markt, - the town hall and the Grote Kerk being the two most perfect buildings there. The best approach is the direct road from the station, beginning with run of the mill constructions (including a number of marijuana cafes) but building up with progressively more beautiful houses until reaching the Grote Markt.

We really enjoy staying just off the Grote Markt. Lovely cafe on the centre - Brinkmann. Also Tourist Information Centre right in the centre and easily accessible. Shame we weren't here on Market Day.

The big market is nice to come. Sitting at one of the terras or see the old Haarlem around you. I come there often and it is never boring.
