Interior highlights are its rich furnishings dating from before the Reformation, including the choir and lectern from 1499, the beautifully carved choir-stalls from 1512, and the brass choir screen from 1509.
In front of the former chapel of the Seamen's Guild hang three models of Dutch warships, while the piers under the tower and in the choir are covered with 15th- and 16th-century paintings depicting symbols of the Apostles, the guilds, and church doctrine.
The museum has the world's largest collection of works by Hals, including five of his large civic guard pieces.
These large canvases display his genius for capturing a moment and bringing it to life in each of the faces.
At the end of the Bakenessergracht is the River Binnen Spaarne, crossed here via an attractive old drawbridge, and from which you get a great view of the Amsterdamse Poort, Haarlem's only surviving city gate.
Built in the early 1400s and a national monument, it's flanked by two octagonal towers and two round towers, as well as remnants of the old city walls.
Built by Christian Müller in 1738, it has three manuals, 68 stops, and 5,000 pipes, the largest of which is 10 meters long with a diameter of 40 centimeters.
The tower, Haarlem's greatest landmark and emblem, was rebuilt based on original plans in 1913 (the original bell still rings at the beginning of council meetings).
The interior is also of interest and includes numerous fine paintings, relics, and mementos, along with fine woodcarvings (guided tours are available).
Among those who have played the organ are Handel and Mozart.
For an unforgettable experience, try to coincide your visit with one of the church's regular organ recitals.
