Small Group Experience
Combine the world famous flower auction in Aalsmeer with a visit to Amsterdam Muiderslot Castle with a small group of max. 7 travelers. The auction starts very early in the morning, but it’s worth it!TOUR DESCRIPTION
The flower auction starts very early in the morning, so our air-conditioned vehicle departs at 6:30 am from Amsterdam. In order to save time so early, our vehichle departs from a centrally located meeting point near Amsterdam Central Station. We are happy to organize a taxi for you if the meeting point is too difficult to acces.
But it's worth to be there early to experience the hustle & bustle of the floor of the flower auction hall! And although nowadays a lot of trading is done online, you still see traders bidding against the auction clock. Enjoy a tour by your professional and friendly guide, and let her share inside information about the flower industry with you from a special gallery.
After the tour you have some free time to take pictures or shop at the souvenir shop, before making the 30-45 minute transfer to Amsterdam Muiderslot Castle, which has opened by the time we arrive.
A real medieval castle, with a moat, towers, battlements, arrow slits and a drawbridge. This so-well preserved castle is over 700 years old and surrounded by water and beautiful historic gardens.
The castle has a long and turbulent history. Discover its secrets, with included admission and a guided tour. After the tour you have some free time to continue your explorations on your own. Discover the historical gardens, where they grow vegetables of the past and herbs for all sorts of purposes, enjoy a drink on the terrace of the the tavern in the courtyard of the castle, or watch the birds of prey. Or do it all, before heading back to Amsterdam where you are dropped off at the meeting point around 1 pm.
