Perhaps you have already thought about taking a trip to Haarlem, even if you have no idea how to plan your visit and what to see. Glynis Ann Cooper’s The Haarlem Walk can be a helpful tool for you. This delightful guide is intended for visitors who enjoy strolling through the city streets. It does not provide a structured itinerary, but it lists all the most significant places, monuments, and buildings you do not want to miss during your visit. Lavishly illustrated, The Haarlem Walk offers many interesting references and a short story of the city. The digital edition adds many useful links to help you plan your journey.

If you like to know the art and history of the places you visit and want to explore them on foot, The Haarlem Walk is your ideal companion. The guide is not a boring collection of anecdotes, but rather a documented and interesting tribute to a wonderful city. Glynis’s style is captivating, something I did not expect from a guide book. Instead, this is one of the strong points of The Haarlem Walk. Through many interesting facts and curiosities, Glynis shows that Haarlem is a city where it is worth spending some time. I especially liked the reference to almshouses, which are some of Haarlem’s most typical places. On the whole, The Haarlem Walk is a charming invitation, and its beautiful pictures show you what a remarkable city Haarlem is. The next step is to go there and see it with your own eyes.
