Practically next door to Schiphol Airport and 10 mi/15 km south of Amsterdam, Aalsmeer is where the country's flower growers hold their auctions. This corporate floriculture can be seen on weekday mornings with a self-guided tour. You can also observe the bidding from a special gallery.
Afterward, stroll along elevated walkways above hundreds of thousands of flowers bundled on large carts. Tons of flowers are auctioned, packed and whisked off to the airport by early afternoon for delivery worldwide.
