Flower Auction & Amsterdam Castle

Small Public Group Tour

Click here for our corona protocol

Combine the world's largest trading center for plants and flowers, the Royal Flower Auction, with a visit to Amsterdam Muiderslot Castle. This small public group tour of max. 7 travelers departs from Amsterdam Central Station.

Tour Description

The Royal Flower Auction starts early in the morning, so our air-conditioned vehicle departs at 6:30 am from Amsterdam Central Station. You have the option to add hotel pick-up in Amsterdam to your booking, if you find the station too far or too difficult to reach.

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 live-guided tour in English from a special gallery and learn about the flower industry. 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 Muiden, the quaint town where the castle is located. Walk with your guide for 5 minutes along the Vecht river and visit an authentic Dutch 'Old Brown Cafe' to enjoy a (included) cup of coffee, tea or hot coco. Then it's time to experience Amsterdam Muiderslot Castle, which has opened by the time we arrive.

This real medieval castle is one of the oldest and best preserved medieval castles in the Netherlands and comes with a moat, towers, battlements, arrow slits and a drawbridge. The castle is over 700 years old and surrounded by water and beautiful historical gardens. Discover its secrets, with included admission and a live-guided tour. After the tour you have some free time to explore the historical gardens on your own, where vegetables from earlier times and herbs for all sorts of purposes are grown. Meet with your guide again for the drive back to Amsterdam, where you are dropped off at the same place as where you started the tour (around 12:30 pm).
