What you’ll do

Just a 15-minute train ride outside of Amsterdam is the charming, historic city of Haarlem. Although quaint, don’t underestimate the punch this picturesque paradise can pack! Join one of our hosts on a personalized experience of the city, exploring the cobbled stone streets and leafy courtyards, marveling at the gothic-style churches, Molen de Adriaan (a traditional windmill - climb it!)) and tranquil canals. We can’t stress the postcard beauty of Haarlem enough. With a fairytale backdrop for your day’s activities, enjoy your hosts company as you see the city together. You can visit the Grote Kerk or Grote Markt and get an authentic taste of the day-to-day life of its people. Haarlem’s architecture is grand, but its museums are even grander. Perhaps go to the Frans Hals Museum, or stop by at a traditional brewery for some craft beer, or both! No rule against that.
