Full description
Your morning or afternoon in Haarlem will start at your hotel in downtown Haarlem or if you travel to Haarlem from elsewhere at a meeting point near the train station. Set off in a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this town.

Your private guide will show you the friendly houses of the Frans Hals Museum, once home to this famous Dutch painter of the golden age. Admire the amazing park Haarlemmerhout with its 18th Century erected neo classical pavilion. See the lively shopping streets and main square market. Wandering through the streets of Haarlem will take you back to the glory days of Haarlem in the 16th and 17th Century, but you will also encounter some great modern architecture built no more then a few years ago.
