Boeken in de Bavo – The Annual Book Market in Haarlem

Went to Haarlem today for the annual book market – Boeken in de Bavo. The market itself is quite nice, 75 sellers (or something like that), quite a diverse choice of books. But what’s makes this fair really special is the astonishing location!

Here is a short video I made after my visit:

It took me about 90 minutes to walk by all the stalls. And I had to cut it short because was late for another appointment. So, I guess a proper visit should last for the whole two hours if you want to browse through all the books and chat with some of the sellers.

Free admittance. Additional information about the market may be found on the official websites of the St.-Bavokerk and Haarlem city (links below are about the 2018 market):
