What to expect

Curious about the lesser-known stories of Haarlem’s Golden Streets? Starting with the very first steps of this playful walk, you’ll experience the thrill and beauty of discovery. Location-based riddles will show you the way to our favorite local places, including cheesemongers, candlemakers, quiet courtyards, and cute hidden spots we’ll keep secret... for now! Fun fact: this trail was created by the game's co-founders, Kristina and Wendy.

This playful walk across Haarlem’s city center sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know the city or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

Local wonders you’ll discover on this walk include:

  • The small art of the “big” market Square, Grote Markt
  • Proveniershof – a gorgeous green courtyard
  • The stunning Omvalspoort
  • The most charming shopping streets (great for independent stores!) such as Koningstraat and Kleine Houtstraat

This discovery walk is an educational and fun activity for friends, couples, families with kids, curious locals, visitors, and team building. You can fully enjoy this experience of connecting with the city while staying in your own group.

Along the way, enjoy meaningful moments of discovery; explore, learn and have fun! Use #secretcitytrails to be featured on the company's social media and enter a monthly raffle to win a free discovery walk.
