  • We were in Amsterdam last summer and decided to stay in Haarlem instead. Did not regret.
    Don’t get me wrong, Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in the world, but the aggressive bike riders and the crowds of tourists…

    It was nice to get away from that and enjoy “mini Amsterdam” after a busy day in Amsterdam!
