‘Say it with flowers’, is one very popular flower commercial slogan in the Netherlands. As is ‘Crazy about flowers’. If you ever visited the Dutch capital before, you know that there are a lot of Amsterdam flower shops. A lot of tourists love to visit the Bloemenmarkt (flower market), which is beautiful but very crowded as well. This is why we wanted to share with you our three favourite Amsterdam flower shops. Enjoy the diversity that these florists offer and get a bouquet while you’re at it. There’s always a good reason to bring een bossie ruikers (Amsterdam dialect for nice smelling bouquet) home.
- Bloemenhandel Sijmons – Gerard Doustraat 158
As you can see on the picture above this article, Bloemenhandel Sijmons has a wide variety of flowers. This is why we love this shop so much. They are happy to help you assembling a bouquet but have some pretty pre-made ones as well. During the day, you can also visit them at the Albert Cuypmarkt at number 130.
- Bloembinderij Zwaan – Het Laagt 701 KIOS
Definitely a go-to flower stall if you’re in the neighbourhood (Amsterdam-Noord). Here you will get honest advise on which flowers combine well and which don’t. One thing is sure, you will go home with a beautiful bouquet. Everyone working in the stall is very talented and creative and that shows in the loyal customers they have.
- Prinselijk Gebonden – Herenstraat
Last but definitely not least is this beautiful florist in the Amsterdam Centre. Their shop window is an attraction itself. Curious people stop and pose for a perfect picture with the beauty that stands outside. Do not hesitate to go inside though, there is more of where that beauty comes from! At Prinselijk Gebonden you’ll see the seasons change because they only work with fresh seasonal flowers.
