My boyfriend and I visited the market as we was passing through the city. It was a beautiful market with small shops around it, everything was filled with tulips! Would definitely recommend visiting!

If you have an interest in plants the market is worth a visit. It's a nice walk along the canals if you like looking at old and wonky buildings (as I do). While the markets stalls themselves get a bit repetitive, there are also several...More
