First class waiting room in Haarlem station - Haarlem

First class waiting room in Haarlem station

If you are in Haarlem....

Favorite thing: ... then don't miss out to have a look at the interior of the trainstation. The building might not look that impressive from the outside, but when you go inside, you will be left with a whole other impression.
This pictures shows the tiles of the first class waiting room.
In total there were 3 different types of waiting rooms.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Along the waterfront at Haarlem - Haarlem

Along the waterfront at Haarlem

Along the water Sculptures Review

Favorite thing: What would Haarlem be without the canals, without the water?
The city is surrounded and crossed with the chanels.
It is lovely to see all those big and small yaughts sailing in.
Some one was even inventive and deisgned this bench so you an sit dry... or for what ever purpose it is designed !
One thing is for sure: it does add colour in the street!

beach at Haarlem - Haarlem

beach at Haarlem

Some good sense of humor!

Favorite thing: Any inconveniences might lead to funny initiatives.
When one of the shopping streets was under construction and all sandy, it brought some one to the idea of bringing the beach inside the city !
A nice illustration of how to cope with daily life difficulties with a whink.


Fondest memory: Playing at the beach in Haarlem `-)

Vleeshal (meat hall) - Haarlem

Vleeshal (meat hall)

De Vleeshal (Meat Hall) Grote Markt Review

Favorite thing: This is the Vleeshal (that is why a red text hahaha).
It is a museum and it is just at the back of the Big Market, facing the restaurant Het Specktakel that we visited.
We didn't visited this museum because we had so many other things to do and to see.
I could add it on my list for next time visits !

City Hall Haarlem - Haarlem

City Hall Haarlem

Haarlem City hall Grote Markt Review

Favorite thing: Haarlem is an historical city with a Medieval centre.
The city hall overlooking the Grote Markt (Big Market) and a lost local that thought she was outside the picture `-)


Fondest memory: At the time I visited there was a fair and a flower parade, so the city was pretty much alive.

"Allo micro?" Flower market at Haarlem - Haarlem

"Allo micro?" Flower market at Haarlem

Typical Dutch Flowers Review

Favorite thing: What can I say? You cannot denie that Dutch people have something about flowers.
I wished here, in Belgium, so nearby, we could addapt the way to show our love towards flowers as or northern neighbours do!
They get a 10/10 for this topic!


Fondest memory: The flowermarket on Sunday after the parade was marvelous!
I saw this little poppy flower and I could not resist to take a picture of it.
I call this picture:
"Communicate!"
(we look different but we are the same)
