bloemensingel

Amsterdam's floating flower market along the Singel

The floating flower market at the Singel Canal is one of the most colorful and fragrant places of interest of Amsterdam in all four seasons.

It is unique in that the merchandise is displayed on floating barges. This is a relic from the days when the flowers and plants sold at this market were shipped in from the horticultural areas around the city by barges. Fresh flowers are still brought in every day; by vans, however, and no longer by boat.

Dutch tulips

This floating flower market on one of the oldest canals of Amsterdam, the Singel, was first held in 1862. It has since developed into the best-known flower market of Holland. Whatever your favorite flower, you are bound to find it here.

Merchandise ranges from the traditional Dutch tulips and geraniums to delicate indoor cypresses and manobole plants from the Easter Islands. Typically Dutch souvenirs are sold too.
In December the market colors green with masses of Christmas trees in all shapes and sizes.
