Geographical situation :
The flower market (bloemenmarkt) is situated beside one of the oldest canals in Amsterdam, the Singel, near Muntplein.
Opening hours :
It is open all year from 9am to 5.30pm monday to saturday and from
11am to 5.30pm on sunday. These times, however, have probably changed
since our last visit... Ask for details when you arrive in the city.
How to get there :
In order to get to the bloemenmarkt, take lines 1, 2 or 5 of the tramway and get off at Koningsplein, alternatively take lines 4, 9, 14, 16, 24 or 25
and get off at Muntplein.
The flowers are found on boats moored on the canal quay : it's a sort of floating market. As with most markets, there is a lot going on but
it's very vivid in colours : the flowers and shrubs are magnificent.
Don't miss this visit when you can admire and smell all the flowers that are the pride of the Netherlands : a truly exquisite experience for the senses !
