    We were lucky to visit Haarlem on a Saturday. So we could stroll through a great and colourful market.

    The center of town is found at Grote Markt. The dominate feature being Grote Kerk, or St Bavo church. A great place for food, pubs or just people watching.

    There are regular open market days on the Markt. A variety of goods can be found. I found flower bulbs to bring home from here. I still can enjoy my trit to the Netherlands every summer.

    Flowers anyone?

    Go and see the Vleeshal (museum) and the Vischhal (expositionroom) on the Grote Markt in Haarlem. There is so much to see!

    Laurens Jansz. Coster monument

    Laurens Janz. Coster was the first person to invent printing in 1423. He did it already 16 years before Gutenberg did. This 19th century statue commemorates this innovation.

    This magnificent example of Dutch Renaissance achitecture was a 'meat hall' when built in 1603 and is now used as an exhibition place for modern art.

    Stadhuis

    by barryg23 Updated Jun 16, 2003

    On one side of the Grote Markt is the Stadhuis, which translates as Town Hall. Many of the Dutch towns I saw had very pretty Stadhouses (?!)

    Vleeshal

    by OlafS Written Feb 25, 2003

    'Vleeshal' translates to 'meat-hall' and I really cannot explain to you what that is, except that it's the name of this nice Manneristic building designed by architect Lieven de Key.
