Our private, guided Tour will start early in the morning at your hotel in Amsterdam. We will then drive 25 km. South of Amsterdam to the world’s largest flower auction ‘Royal Flora Holland’, in Aalsmeer.
Early in the morning the auctioning of flowers and plants starts and we will explain all about ‘Dutch auction’ and the distribution of the millions of flowers and plants. Every hour 1000 - 1200 transactions take place. The volume that will pass by in the auction halls is unbelievable! After the auction and distribution, we will visit a wholesale company, where small florists from Holland and surrounding countries are able to buy their smaller quantities of flowers, plants and floral supplies!
After the visit to the flower auction, we will drive to a Tulip grower that produces cut flowers in greenhouses for the auction from Tulip bulbs which have grown in the fields the previous year.
We will first watch a movie about the way Tulip bulbs grow and how the bulbs are handled after harvesting. Then we will do a Tour in the greenhouses. We will get explanations about the growing and handling of the millions of flowers being harvested.
