Flower Auction & Kinderdijk

Private (Group) Experience

Visit the royal flower auction first, where you experience the bustle on the floor, watch traders buy by the clock and be amazed by the enormous amount of beautiful flowers from nearly 50 countries that are traded every day. Continue your explorations and visit world heritage site Kinderdijk, the location of a group of 19 authentic windmills which were built to pump up the polder water. 

This full day experience is for a private party of maximum 7 travelers and can be tailored or adjusted to your interests and convenience. 

The flower auction starts very early in the morning, so start your experience to the auction comfortably as you are being picked up by your guide around 6:30 am.

The auction starts at 7:00 am and it's worth to be there early to experience the hustle & bustle of the floor of the flower auction hall! Although nowadays a lot of trading is done online, you still see traders bidding against the auction clock. Enjoy a tour exclusive for your party, and let your guide 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 transfer of 75 minutes to Kinderdijk.

Upon arrival, watch a brief introductory movie about Kinderdijk and learn about its history. After the movie you can choose to walk, together with your guide, to the two museum mills or to use the boat instead. At the mills you can meet the millers and learn about their trade. Ask them anything you'd like to know about milling! All the other windmills are still inhabited by millers and their families. Climb the stairs inside one of the two mills and see for yourself how water and wind are paramount in the lives of millers. 

If you choose to visit the mills by foot, you can use your boat ticket afterwards. Let the skippers of Kinderdijk carry you across the glittering waters of the Kinderdijk basins for 30 minutes; a guarantee for marvellous pictures. After having explored the beautiful windmills of Kinderdijk it is time for the transfer back to your drop off address, where you arrive around 1:30 pm.
