Mix more than 50 particularly nice stores with about 18 national monuments and a lot of liveliness, and voilà: the Vulture Street.
From children's books to spelt bagels, from classical CDs, coffee beans or sneakers to Haarlemmerolie, the Gierstraat is full of surprises. It's almost impossible to imagine that a streetcar once roared through this charming little street. But it is true! In Gierstraat you will find perhaps the oldest store in Haarlem: drugstore A.J. Van der Pigge, recognizable by the facade and the authentic interior of the store. There are also stores in the field of spirituality, cooking, children's books, jewelry, classical music and more.
