First of all, I would recommend seeing this Cathedral first on your trip to Haarlem, then see the St. Bavo near the Grote Market. Very different on the interiors. The only reason I enjoyed St Bavo at the Grote Market more was the fact it...More
The first sight of this building is definitely a "wow' moment. Simply the scale of it.

Well worth visiting and paying the 2.5 Euro entrance fee. Fascinating history and very impressive building. The organ is well worth listening to if you can. It's nearly 30M tall and has over 5000 pipes!

Went to this church and was impressed by the fact that photos were permitted. This is a beautiful building and amazing to think this construction was so old. The church is not overly ornate but very pleasant to observe. Worth a visit.
A beautiful cathedral. It seems as if there were many buildings together side by side, but it is simply the shape of its chapels and domes. In the interior the whole structure is impressive, formed with bricks and the impressive organ of almost 30 meters...More
