Flower City
Often referred to as "Mini Amsterdam," Haarlem provides all the classical charm of Amsterdam, but on a smaller scale. The quaint city is full of cozy bars and cafes, pedestrian-only cobblestone streets, and beautiful architecture. Previously one of the Netherlands' most powerful cities, Haarlem never fully recovered after World War II. Now, it is mostly supported by tourism and as a Dutch shopping destination. During the 16th and 17th centuries, Haarlem became known as a center for Dutch art. Today the town is home to several museums, where you can view originals by old masters such as Rembrant and Michelangelo, as well as contemporary art. Make your own Haarlem vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our The Netherlands trip planner.

Where to stay in Haarlem

Many visitors to Haarlem choose to stay in the historical town center, which offers easy access to the city's outstanding museums. Centrally located four- and five-star rooms and suites offer all the amenities you need, but they also come at a steep price. For slightly less expensive lodgings, check out the good-value guesthouses and self-catering apartments just minutes from the city's main train station. You can also visit Haarlem from nearby Amsterdam, which offers a greater variety of affordable hotel and hostel rooms.
