Flowers and art in Aalsmeer

Aalsmeer is best known for its international flower auction, FloraHolland, but the Flower Festival puts the village itself in the spotlight. 

Historical garden and the Flower Art Museum

The locations of the festival have everything to do with flowers. The Historische Tuin is the horticultural museum of Aalsmeer. Here you find greenhouses with beautiful old flower varieties, a mini auction room, fields with special plants and trees and much more.

The other location is the Flower Art Museum, which was opened last year, the first museum in the world dedicated entirely to contemporary art inspired by flowers. During the festival, the artworks in the museum are combined with beautiful floral art. There are various activities at both locations, such as live music, auction sessions and activities for children.

Practical Information

Aalsmeer Flower Festival is 15 and 16 June from 11 am to 5 pm. Tickets cost € 7.50 and are valid throughout the weekend. The admission is free for children up to the age of 14. With a ticket you can also make use of the shuttle buses between the locations and the water taxis, which make a boat trip of about half an hour from one location to another.
