Tulips at the Bloemenmarkt
Some of the most iconic scenes of the Netherlands are the fields of painstakingly cultivated tulips that sway across the countryside, and Amsterdam’s Bloemenmarkt is the ideal spot to find these blooms freshly cut. You can peruse the tulips and other flowers across more than a dozen floating houseboats lining the Singel canal. You can also find an enviable variety of bulbs for at-home cultivation. (Make sure to ask which ones are cleared for export.)
