The first station Haarlem was opened on September 20, 1839, as one of the three stations of the railway line Amsterdam - Haarlem, the first railway of the HIJSM and also the first Dutch railway (Amsterdam - Halfweg - Haarlem), now part of the Old Line .
The original station building was replaced in 1906 by a new building from D.A.N. Margadant to the now high-altitude railway. In 1908 the building was completely ready.
Characteristic of the building are the two different entrance and exit buildings, and the location of the waiting rooms and restoration on the island platform. It is the only station in the Netherlands in Art Nouveau or Jugendstil style, and one of the most striking buildings in the city of Haarlem. Characteristic features include the many tile pictures in the building.
Sauna Egmond is also easily accessible from the station: from the Haarlem Central Train station bus 3 in Northern direction, stops at the stop "Spaarnhovenstraat". We are situated on the oppsite of the street behind the bus stop.
