Amsterdamse Poort, Haarlem: 4 reviews and 5 photos

  Amsterdamse Poort
by martin_nl

A few hundred years ago, the city of Haarlem wasn't as big as it is nowadays. The city centre as it now is was surrounded by city-walls. The city could be entered through various gates. Because Haarlem was getting bigger and bigger, the walls had to go, and with it the gates. The only remaining gate is the Amsterdam Gate.

Directions: Cross the river Spaarne via the Gravenstenenbrug and follow the water, turn left into Spaarndammerstraat and there it is.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
