“I know its rather confusing, because Haarlem has two St Bavo churches.(one of them is on the main square Grote Markt, this one is on the Leidsevaart) Both are well worth a visit. There is a very nice walk between these 2 churches. This route can be downloaded on and is a lovely way to discover Haarlem. It is also possible to reach it by boat on the hop on hop off boat. Open every day from 10.00 till 16:30. Entrance fee includes a audio tour. Climbing the tour costs extra. ”
