Fodor's Review

This former hunting lodge on the market square belonged to the Count of Holland, who permitted it to be transformed into Haarlem's Town Hall in the 14th century. The large main Gravenzaal (Count's Hall) is worth a visit—if you can sneak in between bouts of confetti throwing; there are a good number of bridal parties ascending its steps on a regular basis—to study its collection of 16th-century paintings amassed by the Count of Holland. If you wish to tour the premises, call in advance to get permission.
