Walk along the winding waterways of Haarlem
We will start at the windmill De Adriaan (1779), which was built on the remains of a middle-aged watchtower of the ancient city walls. We will cross the bridge over to visit the old centre, where we will see the following: several middle age houses in the old Begijnhof, the Waalse church built by the first French protestants who came to the Netherlands, the Jewish neighbourhood and a memorial dedicated to the victims of WWII, Backenesser hofje, one of the 40 courtyards of Haarlem and the oldest in the Netherlands. Walking along the Backenesser canal, we will arrive at the gravestenenbrug, the Weight House. We will finish at the big market square we can admire monuments such as the St Bavo Church, the Fish Hall, the oldest house, the Meat Hall, Laurens Coster statue (inventor of movable type) and at the end of the square, the old City Hall where we finish our tour.
