It's fascinating to see the mind boggling quantity of flowers being moved through the place. There's plenty of information about how the system - including the auction process - works. Well worth a visit.

The self guided tour can be done at your own pace. Its fascinating to watch the sale and packaging and shipping of the flowers. Easy to reach by public bus from Amsterdam.

First, to get to the Aalsmeer Flower Auction warehouse, from Schiphol airport, take Connexxion bus 198 to Aalsmeer and get off at Hortensiaplain, which seems to be a stop in the middle of the highway. There are mostly fields around the bus stop and behind...More
