Haarlem with its many historic buildings and beautiful old squares lies near the beach on the banks of the Spaarne river.

Visit extraordinary museums, such as the Frans Hals or Teylers Museum, and explore its countless cafés and restaurants. Haarlem is called the most Flemish city of the north with reason!
