“I guarantee you will enjoy this place”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Walking around Grote Markt made us feel as if we were inside a Harry Potter movie, I think It was Sunday and there was also an outdoor market that sells nick knacks, clothes, toys, books, handicrafts from Indonesia and other countries.
College Students were enjoying the sun sitting outside or in the surrounding coffee shops and there was this double decker red bus with a banner of "Just married " parked in the square near the Church !
Such a beautiful place, I definitely recommend it.

“Fabulous city center - like a little Amsterdam”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Grote Markt has everything you could ever want in a city center - cafés, shopping, a large canal and fabulous architecture including the beautiful church in the center of the square. Go on Saturday for the outdoor market selling everything from cheese to jewelry

“Prettiest square I've seen!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The square of Haarlem looks like something out of a fairy tale. Great restaurants surrounding the square, a beautiful cathedral and all in a setting that is not too commercialized!

“Beautiful town on a beautiful day!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

You can't miss this area if you're walking around town...you'll walk right into it. We were lucky enough to come on a pretty day, and the town square was alive with people and restaurants, etc. What a fun place to visit!!!
