Flower Auction & Mills

5,5 hours, max. 6 passengers


7:30 AM Pick up

Pick up at your hotel/BnB/Ship. Is early, because the flower auction starts and ends early in the morning. It’s ca. 45 minutes by car to the flower auction.

8:15 AM  Flora Holland, 1,5 hour visit

This is the biggest flower auction of the world and everything is big here! Smell the flowers when you walk over the corridor, looking down on millions of flowers. Be amazed by the hundreds of electric vehicles that rave criss cross over the working floor, picking up their load of flowers to bring them to the exporters. Admire the 18 km long “Aalsmeer Shuttle”. Try to keep up with the auction clock, where they daily sell 43 million flowers. This really a “wow” experience.

09:45 AM Depart for Mills at Zaanse Schans

10:15 AM Arrival at the mills

Go back in time, when you visit a real working old saw mill at Zaanse Schans. Hear the saw crunch through the timber and feel the floor tremble. Be amazed by the techniques they already used 400 years ago. Admire the video about the construction of the mill. Ask questions about anything to the volunteer millers. Learn about the importance of these mills for Dutch history.
