Highlights

Haarlem city centre shows many old and historical buildings. We’ve highlighted a few of them which are definitely worth of a visit during your trip in Haarlem.

The Waag was built in renaissance style between 1594 and 1599, based on the design and supervision of Haarlem city architect Lieven de Key.

Cathedral of St Bavo

This impressive Roman Catholic cathedral in Haarlem is relatively young, since the work was concluded in 1930. St. Bavo is the city’s patron saint.
