“Every day a surprise”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

We stayed in Haarlem on and off for 10 weeks, so we saw a lot of action in the Grote Markt. Every weekend the markets, but also the Bloemencorso was fantastic. There was a fair for a week, and we saw weddings and many activities. Even a lazy Sunday afternoon in one of the numerous restaurants, cafes or bars surrounding the area and people watching while sipping on a wine or deliciously cold beer. What a great way to waste an afternoon!

“Visit on the weekend”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

I loved the different booths - especially the stroop waffel booth! Never better than when they're fresh! It's a fun market, with all sorts of frivolous and practical goods. Look for the flower stands - gorgeous!

“This joint is jumpin'”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Jazz Festival when I visited, lots of "buzz" and the great weather helped give a carnival feel to the place. Also felt completely safe, I didn't even think about feeling worried by all the crowds.

“Historic square”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Beautifull historic town square. Has a nice mix of museum shops bars and restuarants. We used it as a break area in between the two nice shopping streets that end here
