The flower auction at Aalsmeer is the largest trading centre for plants and flowers in the world. And it’s just a stone’s throw from Schiphol airport. This is the only place in the world where you can watch them in action!
The auction is open to visitors on:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 07:00 to 11:00 hrs
Thursday from 07:00 to 09:00 hrs
We advise you to start your visit as early as possible because in the early hours everything is in full activity.The earlier you come, the more you see!
The auction is closed to visitors on holidays and between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
From the Visitor Centre, walk across a gallery through the auction complex. At the end of the bridge, you arrive at the auction room where dealers buy at the clock.
As you walk around, you’ll find information panels which explain – in four languages – the auction process and the activities you’ll be watching. There’s no need to sign up for this tour in advance.
