Flower Auction

Small Public Group Tour

From Monday to Friday you have the opportunity to visit the world's largest trading center for plants and flowers, the Royal Flower Auction, with our small public group tour departing from Amsterdam.

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.

Set off on a live-guided tour from a special gallery in English and learn about the flower industry. After the tour you have some free time to take more pictures or to shop in the souvenir shop. Then it's time for the drive back to Amsterdam, where you are dropped off at the same place as where you started the tour.
