Amsterdam vs. Haarlem?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to the Netherlands in mid April and will have 6.5 days on the ground there. Our plan was to stay in Amsterdam and use it as a home base to range out from to see the rest of the country. I have heard from some that Haarlem is also a great place to use as home base. Would someone give me advice on this?

Also, how much time do I need to spend touring Amsterdam? Was thinking 2-3 days.

Finally, what are the must-see places outside of those cities? I had originally been planning Broek-in-Waterland/Monnickendam/Marken, Keukenhof Gardens/Leiden, and Delft.
