Wat je gaat doen

First we will meet in the Grote Markt (main town square) there is a very large statue of a local printmaker next to the Grote of Sint Bavo (Cathedral). This is a unique and original walking tour that will give insight into how Haarlem came to be and the people behind it. The tour covers the origins of Haarlem, Art and Architecture, from earlier Gothic through to Jugendstil and the Amsterdam School, life, death and high culture in Medieval and Renaissance times. Buildings are a reflection of society and Haarlem has over 1200 historic buildings. However while the buildings are protected they are no longer a document to the social changes that have occurred. On this tour you will find out how most of the changes have taken place on the inside. The tour will take you to some places off the main tourist routes and help you see the buildings in a new light. With each stop a window to the past will be opened, in the process painting a picture of the city from its humble beginnings to the present day. Half way through the tour we will stop for a quick 15 minute coffee break in a secret spot high up above the city, it also makes a great photo opportunity.

Hi my name is James, I've always been passionate about history, culture, art and architecture. I've lived in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and now the Netherlands. I've given walking tours in all of the cities I lived in. Buildings are a reflection of the societies that live in them, my tours are very diverse and connect the dots between the people, art, buildings and places.

A wonderful tour of Haarlem with James today. We have an appreciation for history and architecture as does James - and he shared his great knowledge of both as we toured the city. A very nice way to start our day - and we recommend this tour with James to others who want to learn about Haarlem.
