Bloemenmarkt Tours

Taking place daily in the canals of Amsterdam, the Bloemenmarkt is the only floating flower market in the world. Dating back to 1862, traders once would sail directly in to sell their flowers. Today it consists of more than fifteen local florists as well as other small vendors. The boats lining the waterways have the scenic canal houses as a backdrop. Stretching over a block long, the floating barges carrying colorful flowers is a unique sight to behold.

Aside from its multi-colored visuals, the market is also incredibly fragrant. Vendors tend to sell flower bulbs for cultivation, though there are also freshly cut flowers and bouquets. The country’s famous tulips and geraniums are the most common flowers, but indoor plants and greenery are also for sale. Bulbs are a popular gift that can be taken home, and many other traditional Dutch souvenirs are also on display.

The market is mostly visited by locals, but is also a stop on many city tours of Amsterdam both on foot and via the canals.

Practical Info

The Bloemenmarkt can be found on the Singel Canal, between the Koningsplein and the Muntplein. The nearest tram stop is Koningsplein. Seasonally there is also a Christmas market (with trees for sale) in the area.
