Amazed at what Corrie ten Boom’s family did during WW2. The hiding place is a great book, and the tour of the home brought it to life. Worth the trip from Amsterdam (which was not difficult from central station, on the sprinter).

The best way to get from Amsterdam to Haarlem is by train. Not to expensive, not to far and a really enjoyable trip if you like public transportation. You could always rent a car but I never do because I don't want to hassle... More
