Haarlem, Netherlands (Holland) travel video

47


The historic city of Haarlem is one of the most attractive destinations in the Netherlands. We show the main neighborhoods you want to have a look at when you’re visiting Haarlem, a real Dutch treat. In the center the market square with the great church towering over, and just below there is a series of pedestrian lanes lined with shops and cafés that are very charming, and there are little side residential lanes here as well. Haarlem is only 15 minutes away from Amsterdam by train, so it makes an easy day-trip, but this small city is so fascinating you might want to spend a night or two to fully enjoy the experience.
Many of these brick buildings date back 400 years to the 17th century when Haarlem was at its peak of prosperity. They were homes and workshops and warehouses of the merchants. Today there are a lot of bars and restaurants and then it becomes a shopping street.
And this leads us right into perhaps the most charming street in Haarlem and maybe the cutest lane in the country.
Kleine Houstraat. You won’t get lost here because it’s a small district and the streets are rather straight and run at right angles to each other, but there’s plenty here to keep you busy for a full day just wandering around. Walk along some of these connecting streets like Anegan, it’s almost like a wide shopping mall that joins up three of the other main shopping streets.
You’ll find the shoppers and workers are friendly and ready to talk.
There is frequent train service every 10 minutes between Haarlem and Amsterdam. However if you come on day trip you’re probably not going to be getting to the ends of some of the shopping lanes and into the interesting little back streets or to the museums. If you spend a night or two you’ll have plenty of time.

  5. Hans Oosterom says

    Haarlem truly is a beautiful little city. Easy walk from the train station. Lots to see if you like wandele (wandering about). BTW Kleine Houtstraat actually translates as "Little Wood street." The church is impressive; the beer is good and everywhere; the people are very pleasant; and you really must visit the Taylor Museum. The building alone is worth the visit. I really enjoyed the video. Dankje wel. Also, a shameless plug for Utrecht where I was born. It too is a nice city to roam around in especially if you go to the Binnestad (the inner city) . It's about a 10 minute walk from Utrecht Centraal, the train station.

    Love the use of maps and street names in these wonderful informative videos! Certainly make me want to return and see more. And yes…the bicycles! Wish I could still ride one! Stay on the walking lanes, and don’t walk on the bicycle lane. Some cyclists can get abusive if you walk in their lane, and I don’t blame them.

    Very beautiful and clean city

  31. jhcfight says

    It's too bad that tourists think they've seen Holland city life (I really mean Holland, not The Netherlands) if they've been in Amsterdam. Haarlem is much more representative for it. For a city tourism is a good thing, but Amsterdam is an example that it can be too much and even disturbing. Haarlem doesn't have those problems, and that's the reason why I prefer shopping in Haarlem and skip Amsterdam.

  32. Rudolf de Lang says

    I was born there (1961)..Thank you for uploading this video

  33. Mr Varus says

    I have never seen an obese Dutch person.Why you might ask.All that cycling…Take note Americans.
