Haarlem is a Spaarne River cruise port in Holland (The Netherlands). The city is the capital of North Holland and is located at the northern tip of Randstad - one of Europe's most populated metropolitan areas. The city has population around 205,000 (metro 420,000) and is just a 15-min train ride from the country's capital Amsterdam.
The contemporary Haarlem City encompasses a former municipality (Schoten) plus parts that previously were part of Heemstede and Bloemendaal. Apart from the city, the same-named municipality also includes Spaarndam's western part, while Spaarndam's newer districts are within the municipality Haarlemmerliede en Spaarnwoude.
Haarlem has been a major trading centre for tulips since the 1630s. It was at the epicentre during tulip mania, when scandalous prices were paid for tulip bulbs. This explains why the port is mainly visited on the "Tulip Time Cruise" (also "Tulips and Windmills River Cruise") themed itineraries operated by all major European river cruise companies - Avalon Waterways, AmaWaterways, Uniworld, Viking.
