Haarlem
The Essential
Recommended
Located on the Spaarne, Haarlem is the historic capital of the county of Holland. The town, which has retained its historic centre and flower-decked narrow streets, is now a centre for the cultivation of bulb flowers which transform the surrounding countryside into a patchwork of colours. Admire masterpieces by the Haarlem School in the superb Frans Hals museum, discover the town's charming hofjes (almshouses) and, if you're here in springtime, don't miss the superb flower parade.
