Amsterdam’s Flower Market is a renowned icon on the Singel canal, at the heart of the city’s UNESCO-listed Canal Ring.
The market here actually dates from 1862, when flower growers would sail their wares on barges into the city centre via the Amstel River.
The modern-day market is actually comprised of fixed barges, but is no less a spectacle.
Each barge has a glasshouse built atop, like a mini version of the greenhouses found throughout the countryside that ensure Holland is an international hotspot for flowers all year round.
Be it tulips, narcissus, snowdrops, carnations, violets, peonies or orchids, you’re sure to find your favourites at the Flower Market, no matter the time of year.
What’s more, the sellers also offer house plants, herbs, seeds and bulbs.
Brighten up your day with a visit to Amsterdam’s famous floating Flower Market (known locally as the Bloemenmarkt).
Rain or shine, this stretch of the Singel canal in the city centre is filled with the vibrant colours and fragrances of fresh flowers every Monday to Saturday – serving tourists and locals alike.
Head home with tulip bulbs for your garden or plants for your home, as well as a fun selection of typically Dutch souvenirs.
