From the big (fashion) chains to special
boutiques and local markets. Haarlem has
it all. And just that makes shopping here
so much fun. Indeed: it is a party.


Not for nothing has Haarlem been named the best shopping city in the country several times. The center is compact and you will find a nice mix of large department stores, small boutiques and unique specialty stores. From the Grote Markt, shopping streets run in three directions: the Grote Houtstraat, the Barteljorisstraat and the Zijlstraat.

Taking a break from the hustle and bustle, looking for unusual shopping concepts? Then stroll through the Golden Streets, seven picturesque side streets of the Grand Place. 

Prefer indoor shopping? Just outside the center, you'll find hundreds more great stores in Generaal Cronjéstraat and Centrum Schalkwijk. On Mondays and Saturdays there is a market on the Grote Markt. On Fridays there is an organic market on the Botermarkt.

Skip the big chains and have a nice stroll through the Golden Streets. Seven picturesque side streets off Grote Houtstraat where you'll come across one cute little store after another. From hip concept stores and boutiques to vintage shops, curios and special gift stores.
