  • The Amsterdamse Poort (ca 1400) owes its name to the road Haarlem-Amsterdam. You can not visit the port, but below it. The gate itself is nowadays inhabited. During the siege of Haarlem (1572-1573) the port played an important role. The gate reminds me of the movie Kenau. Firm and robust. As Well As Kenau Simonsdochter Hasselaer. From the ramparts at the Amsterdamse Poort she defended her city against the Spaniards. The only one of the 12 gates of the Haarlem Haarlem survived the siege without significant damage. Perhaps King Louis Napoleon (1806-18190) to demolish all ports except the Amsterdamse Poort. At the Amsterdamse Poort is the restaurant Jerusalem (including tasty shoarma; s) and a pizzeria.

  • On the bike or run is the best way to reach this Amsterdamse Poort. Despite being in the middle of a traffic artery is of Haarlem is well worth it. The foundations date from earlier centuries while the upper part is completely renovated. If you have enough imagination and you can just close your eyes and ears you might go back in time that only a horse-drawn carriage passed between Haarlem and Amsterdam.

  • Taking into account that this is the only one of the 12 gates of Haarlem, it is a shame how dirty and smelly it is. The arrangement around it doesn't help much (many cars instead of a small park) but ...  more »

  • Is beautiful and quiet. It is also nice if you need to get out of the rain for a few minutes
  • We used to have eleven more of these, but this is the last one. Called amsterdamse poort because it faces Amsterdam. I'm pretty sure someone lives here. And there is a hidden passageway underneath...
  • A castle-like old landmark of the city. Very well preserved.
  • Good spot to visit if you are in Haarlem
  • Nicely preserved, but nothing special around the area.

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.
