International Organ Festival Haarlem

Everything about Haarlem. ...can be found on the website of the Tourist Office Haarlem.

What else does Haarlem have to offer besides one of the oldest and most famous organ festivals in the world?

Let's start with the Frans Hals Museum and Teylers Museum, internationally renowned for their collections and high-profile exhibitions.

You'll fine nourishment of a different nature in an abundance of attractive restaurants, ancient public houses, grand cafés, fashionable brasseries and wine bars. And if antiques and curiosities are your thing, or books, trendy fashion, exclusive interior design and suchlike, Haarlem has plenty to your taste.

A stroll through the historic centre is a great experience. Monumental streets and squares recall the atmosphere of the Golden Age, while almshouse courtyards and twisting medieval alleyways have an intimacy of their own. Everything is close at hand and easy to get to. And your free bicycle gives you the opportunity to get out further - you can even cycle through the dunes to the sea - that's a real Dutch experience!

Last but not least: Amsterdam (and the beach) are 15 minutes away by train!

On the website Haarlemtoer.nl you can visit virtually the historic centre of Haarlem and the Grote Kerk, including the famous organ.
