Haarlem Walking Tour. Unknown and Surprising
Lovely hipster and cosmopolitan architectural city. Not for nothing Haarlem has earned the title of the most beautiful city in Holland. I will take you to explore the most beautiful places in the city. And its architecture stories and the perfect mix between old and modern will make this tour something charming.
We will meet at the time you choose at the Haarlem railway station, famous for being a benchmark of Dutch Art Nouveu architecture. From there we will undertake a three-hour walking tour through the cobbled medieval streets of the Dutch city.
First, we will reach an ancient beguinary. Did you know that in these neighborhoods single women took refuge in times of war? We will find out! Another mandatory stop is in front of the windmill of Adriaan, one of the last remaining in Haarlem.
We will continue the private tour along the Spaarne River to contemplate some essential places such as the Waag building, one of the oldest in the city or the house of Frans Hals.
We will also visit the new church, where we will explain the development of religion throughout the history of the Netherlands. And speaking of temples, we will also take you to see an old church converted into a brewery. Curious, right?
To end the guided tour, we will take a tour of the Plaza Mayor or Grote Markt, place of origin of Haarlem. It contains the most important buildings in the city: the Town Hall; the Vleeshal, old meat market; or the Hoofdwacht, the first town hall in the city.
