“Prime people watching!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Beautiful, picturesque square next to Sint Bavo's Church. My advice is to pick one of the cafes, grab a nice bottle of wine, unwind and people watch! This is a prime location because it's a big square and, therefore, not as crowded as the smaller streets.

“It´s worth paying a visit to the centre of Haarlem”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

If you´re in Amsterdam or anywhere around and have one day off, I recommend the visit to the centre of Haarlem with its heart in the Grote Markt. Enjoy the view of such a well preserved jewel.

“Great market”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is a fantastic market. It is very busy but not so crowded that you can't enjoy it. Lots of varied booths. Even during the week, we loved just sitting out at a table and drinking coffee and watching all the people riding through on their bikes. This is such a peaceful beautiful little village, wish we could have spent more days here.

“Lovely markets”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We were there on a Friday morning and the markets were a pleasure to browse around. Local produce were in abundance. We tried the freshly fried fish and mussels. They were so good and cheap!
