025: Colorful tulips
One of the most popular tourist locations is the Bloemenmarkt (Flower Market), which is located at the Singel between Koningsplein and Muntplein. Founded in 1862, The flower market was gradually transformed from a trees and plants market into a flower market where you can buy a wide variety of freshly cut flowers, flower bulbs, and souvenirs. The flower market is the world’s only floating market. The plants and flowers had to be transported by boats, and therefore the stalls are still established on large boats in the Singel. Even in winter, you can find fresh tulips in various colors, as seen in the picture.
