  • Visited during the Christmas of 8-9 December. The entrance, on that occasion, it was free. Inside the Cathedral, which mainly affects the height, it still proves more imposing and Nordic style. Punches the flooring, especially as it is smoothed and consumed by the passage of people.

  • You can actually not. Our old Baaf. Climb the tower and enjoy the magnificent view of beautiful Haarlem. You see the dunes, the spaarne and of course all clays streets.

  • Like any cathedral. Full of history, an amazing organ and a tomb of two famous men. Who had a great contribution to engineerinh and science.
  • Beautiful and peaceful place. There is a small coffee place in the church. It was nice place to take a break.
  • Great location! Attended an event here last Saturday (Somm wine event -also really great).
  • The whole Haarlem is worth to see but this Cathedral sums it all up about the tranquillity, quietness and relaxing atmosphere of this beautifully town.
  • Magnificent cathedral. The open market is great too! There's an Italian guy selling stone baked pizza, 5 EUR for a small pizza, very nice and fresh ingredients!
