Flower auction

Flower auction

Our private tour starts at your hotel at 7.30 a.m.
We will drive for approx. 40 minutes to the largest flower auction in the world,
'Royal Flora Holland' in Aalsmeer, near Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
At the auction, we will do a walking tour through the buildings (20 million sq. ft.). Auctioneers operate the 
13 digital clocks, to sell large quantities of cut flowers, and 4 digital clocks are used to sell plants. The buyers no longer need to be present at the auction hall, but they can buy all flowers and plants online from their office desk,  log in with their computers from anywhere in the world, and buy the flowers and plants of their choice.

We will visit the cold storage rooms for cut flowers and see where Lilies are stored at night before auctioning starts the next day.
After that, we will visit the vast distribution area, where flower auction employees on electric tractors distribute flowers to the locations of the wholesalers who bought the flowers earlier that morning.

After the auction, we will visit a wholesaler center for small buyers, like florists and garden centers. At this company, they can buy smaller quantities than at the auction.



After the flower auction visit, we will start driving to the Lily flower shows of all 14  Lily breeders in Holland. 

In week 23, all important Lily breeders organize a so-called 'Open House '.


Breeders in different regions

Because they are in different regions, we can only visit 4 - 5 breeders on this day. We will need an additional day if you want to visit all breeders. 

At the end of the Lily tour day, we will return to your hotel in Amsterdam.
