"Haarlem" Haarlem Tip by lthornton11

Haarlem, Amsterdam: 13 reviews and 13 photos

I took a short train ride, about 10 miles outside of Amsterdam to Haarlem. My thought was that I needed to see a small town/village, in addition to the city.

It turned out to be just a mini version of Amsterdam. It still had the cafes and coffeeshops, only on a smaller scale. The architecture is the same, too.

If you're looking for something different than Amsterdam, this probably isn't it. But, if you're looking for something smaller and more quaint than Amsterdam but with the same charm, this is your place.
