The Flowers Of Holland
Dive into the colorful world of flowers through an amazing family-friendly tour, taking you from the fields and greenhouses to the gigantic flower auction warehouse of Aalsmeer.
Flowers (and not just tulips) are a real part of the the Dutch culture, and for hundreds of years, the Netherlands have been the world capital for flower trading.
This fun-filled experience will have your and your children discover the world of flowers, from beginning to end. Just follow our family-friendly experienced guide and let him/her tell you all about how flowers are grown and how they are sold.
After meeting your guide and chauffeur at your hotel, hop on board our luxurious, fully equipped Mercedes V-Class minivan and head out to the flower auction warehouse of Aalsmeer, where millions of flowers transit from all over the world. Follow your guide and walk above the busy working area. From this point of view, this place really looks like a busy ant farm! A great way to understand what the flower business is all about.
Hop back in the car after this 30mn visit and head out to a local flower grower in the outskirts of Amsterdam. There, you will learn about how the flowers (mostly roses) are grown and how to keep your flowers at home beautiful and alive. During the flower season (in March only), you will pass by many flower fields and witness the beautiful colored horizon.
The guide and chauffeur will drop you off at the hotel at the end of this wonderful, family friendly Flowers of Holland activity.
Attention: Due to extreme crowds during the month of March (flower season), the visit to the auction warehouse will be replaced by a visit to another flower farm where everyone in the family will be able to pick their own flowers and make their bouquet.
