Grote Markt, Haarlem's main square, is lined with famous buildings, as well as bars and restaurants. City hall, Vleeshal, Hoofdwacht, and Grote Kerk all border the square. See Hoofdwacht, which was built in the 13th century and is generally regarded as the oldest building in Haarlem. If you're able to visit on a weekend, enjoy the busy market that takes over with vendors selling a range of goods.
