Get your fill of tulips at the floating flower market (©Holland Image Bank)
Amsterdam’s floating flower market, the only one in the world, dates back to 1862. It is as beautiful and fragrant as ever, and spills out on to the quayside. Sadly these days the cut flowers and plants are all transported into town by lorry instead of the traditional boats wending their way through the canal system. Open 9.30am-5.30pm Mon-Sat.
