The Singel flower market is one of Amsterdam?s most colourful attractions. The small shops are located inside a row of floating barges ? a holdover from the days when flowers arrived in Amsterdam every day from the countryside by boat.
The world-famous Amsterdam flower marketAt the Amsterdam flower market you&rsquo:ll find tulips of every colour &ndash: either in bouquets or as bulbs to plant at home. But the market has far more than just tulips. No matter what your favourite flower, you&rsquo:re bound to find it here. Besides cut flowers, there are plenty of house plants, seeds and gardening essentials. If you plan to buy bulbs to take out of the country, be sure they have a customs cleared stamp on the packet so you won&rsquo:t have trouble at the border.
Besides flowers, a number of the shops also sell fun, affordable souvenirs, such as local cheese. In winter, alongside the greenhouse-grown blooms, you&rsquo:ll also find a large variety of Christmas trees and holiday decorations.

Open Garden Days
For one weekend only, visit the pristine gardens of some of Amsterdam?s finest canal houses and experience the quiet oases during Open Garden Days, taking place every June.
Amsterdam gardens open to the publicHidden behind the stately faç:ades of the houses along Amsterdam&rsquo:s canals lie some of the city's best-kept secrets: private gardens. For one weekend in June you can look behind these impressive canal-side homes and step into a completely different world, where a quiet green oasis welcomes visitors.
Canal house lifeVery few of these canal house gardens are usually open to the public year round, but each year some 30 of them are accessible to visitors during Open Tuinen Dagen, or Open Garden Days. Presented by the Museum Van Loon you&rsquo:ll see both classic and contemporary gardens, all beautifully manicured with hedges, ponds and fountains. Indulge yourself and romanticise the canal house life and how the other half lived as, according to the Open Garden Days website, many of these stately homes were occupied by families only in the colder months, vacating to their summer estates when it got warmer.
For more informationA ticket allowing access to all of the gardens costs &euro:20 at the door, &euro:18 if you buy in advance. You can purchase tickets in advance via the Museum Van Loon website, exchanging your voucher for a ticket on the day of the event. The gardens are open from 10:00 to 17:00 on each day of the event.
