Owner description: Located on the Singel Canal, the fantastic displays of flowers at this floating flower market is beautiful to behold.

only one stall sold fresh flowers at one end and only one other at the other end - what about all other stalls in-between ? rubbish tourist stuff, fake tulips and packets of bulbs - hardly a flower market as advertised in the city guides. Don’t waste valuable time going there when you could be enjoying the beauty of Vondelpark.

The market was really nice. Lots of colors and things to choose from. It was easy to find and near is Christmas palace.

The best time to go is in the early spring when the tulips are in, buy a bunch for a very low prices. Otherwise, shop for bulbs, admire the displays.

It was a very touristy area, but there was great selection of tulips and plants to buy. Hopefully the bulbs that I bought grow as I have seen some negative reviews on this website on the quality mixed in with positive reviews.

Not what I was expecting. Pretty touristy but we walked through it in 5 minutes and moved on. It DID become a reference point as we navigated in the following days so actually ended up walking thru it like four times on our way to other places.
