The Corrie ten Boom house is located near the center of Haarlem, Netherlands, just a 10 minute walk south of the Haarlem Central train station. Haarlem is an easy day trip from Amsterdam as it is only about 13 miles west of the capital city...More

If you are in Haarlem, you must see the Corrie Ten Boom house. Wonderful one hour tour, just pick your language AND get your tickets ahead of time. The Halocaust from the Christian perspective, very eye opening.

The best way to get from Amsterdam to Haarlem is by train. Not to expensive, not to far and a really enjoyable trip if you like public transportation. You could always rent a car but I never do because I don't want to hassle... More
