This is the largest flower auction market in the world. Located near Schiphol Airport, it is worth the visit. We took public transportation and took about 50 minutes. The building is 220 football fields under one roof. The logistics of moving the flowers from point...More

Very interesting to see the traders and the clock but nothing to explain exactly how it works. We came in the wrong way and there was no security, nobody asked who we were or what we were doing there. That being said, we didn't pay...More

Get there early. Fascinating tour of the market. You feel real close to the action. Lots of activity and lots of color. Not to be missed.

Not free as the website claims. Millions of flowers, huge operations, very interesting, I'm not sure exciting enough to be there by 7am. Do not regret going, worth seeing where the flowers my husband always orders for me come from.

Thank you for your review Jurupe.. I have tried to get more information about the 172 bus that goes from central station to the Royal Flora Holland and I am unable to confirm that the bus stops at Royal Flora. It seems you have recently done this trip, can you please advise and confirm. Thank you again for your review.

FloraHolland is a flower market only. It has a live flower auction as well as shows you how the flowers are sorted and sent to the buyers. No cheese at all just beautiful flowers.

Hi: I am from Bangladesh working for a USAID's agricultural value chains project in Bangladesh. I have been trying to reach any one from FloraHolland Aalsmeer who can help me with information. My project work with flower farmers in Bangladesh, and I would like to send a group of 10 flower farmers and traders to FloraHolland Aalsmeer to observer, learn and gather experience on how FloraHolland Aalsmeer does the flower auction, flower farming, harvesting, packaging and transportation as well. Would really appreciate if anyone can help me with contacts.
