Haarlem is the historic capital of North Holland, famously known as the City of Flowers due to the many tulip fields that surround it. Like Amsterdam, it has its own system of canals and waterways, as well as some stunning architecture, but is a little more relaxed than the bustling capital just 12 miles away.
