CITY OF FLOWERS

The North Holland provincial capital of Haarlem is located just west of Amsterdam via a 15-minute train ride.

Just a short walk from the beautiful Art Deco train station, narrow streets lead to the Grote Markt (Grand Market) square and the Grote St-Bavo Kerk (Great Church) in the center of town. Medieval architecture and museums are found along charming cobbled streets and canals, where bicycles pass over historic bridges.
