Flower Market

Holiday Travel Guide
Flower Market showing markets, a city and a river or creek

Enjoy the vibrant colours and delicious scents as you browse for souvenirs at this historic floating flower market.

The Bloemenmarkt in Amsterdam is a unique floating flower market. It has been operating from the Singel canal since 1862, and is the only one left in the Netherlands. The market’s 15 stalls float on pontoons, spilling out onto Singel Street in front. Apart for the iconic Dutch tulips, you can pick up bulbs and seeds, as well as other souvenirs.

The flowers available depend on the season. Generally, you’ll find tulips in the spring, roses in summer and, of course, Christmas trees in December. Even if you are not in Amsterdam in the winter, you can still pick up traditional tree ornaments and candles from the Christmas stall that is open all year round.

Flowers at the Bloemenmarkt are reasonably priced but don’t be afraid to negotiate, as you’ll only be going along with the long history of trading in Holland.

There are also plenty of stalls and shops specialising in the traditional Dutch crafts such as Delfts Blauw porcelain, painted clogs and delicious Dutch cheese. Stop off in the café for a taste of Gouda or Edam in a toasted sandwich.

You can easily while away an hour or two browsing the stalls, learning about all the flowers and immersing yourself in the many sweet scents. Great photos of the market stalls can be taken from the bridges spanning the canal.

The Flower Market is located on the stretch of water between the Konigsplein and Muntplein bridges. The stalls are open every day and there is no charge for entry to the market, but it can get very busy. If you are travelling on public transport, both trams and buses from Central Station stop at Konigsplein and Muntplein. As car parking is very limited in the city centre, it’s best to leave your car in the park-and-ride car parks at the edge of the city, and travel in by public transport.
