Haarlem, the city between Amsterdam and the dunes, is a great place for a short city trip. The city counts numerous typically Dutch houses and public buildings that are still intact and beautiful. Exploring the streets of Haarlem gives you the feeling that you could as well be strolling around there a century earlier. The city of arts and culture has a few famous museums; The Frans Hals Museum and Teylers Museum. Both museums are showing known historic pieces.
When you would like to visit Amsterdam, but are looking for a less busy place to stay, Haarlem makes the perfect base. From Haarlem it’s only a 15 minute drive to Amsterdam by car or by train. Another advantage is the beach and dunes that are very close.
