  • Wonder shopping. everything is in easy reach. I live yourself in haarlem. But if for slightly less tourism than Amsterdam as an example. Haarlem is a very nice place. Everything you have. from retail to clothing, groceries, food etc.. I say certainly just do. Super nice terraces besides where you're sure ff what should go drink after a day of shopping or a day watch museums. Good luck!
