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!
Favorite thing: OK, here is one of the six Lourens Janszoon Coster statues. This one was placed at the Grote Markt for some time, but it was moved back to its original location after the big new statue on the Grote Markt was placed.
The Steekspel op 't Sant (Toernooirijders) statue was made by sculptor Eric Claus. It refers to popular horse tournament that was played at 't Sant (the former name of the market square).
The statue is locate at the corner of the Grote Markt and the Lepelstraat.
Next to the six statues of Lourens Janszoon Coster that can be found in Haarlem there are a lot of other sculptures.
This couple is located in a typical Dutch Train Station environment: bicycles.
Favorite thing: At the South end of the Grote Houtstraat you will find the bronze statue called "Stadten" by sculptor Kees Verkade. It represents three shopping ladies. The statue was made in 1966.
Favorite thing: This lovely statue was located in the gardens around St Bavo's. I am not sure who it is of but I thought it looked nice.
