Aalsmeer Flower Festival

Aalsmeer Flower Festival is an awe-inspiring display of flowers and plants. For two days, flowers and plants are exhibited in ways you’ve never seen before, integrated into art installations, design masterpieces and even juxtaposed with food! 

At the sixth edition of this dazzling flower festival, you can enjoy the fantastical sights on June 15 and 16 from 11am until 5pm. This year, the theme is "Flora's Finest", shining the spotlight on the latest and greatest in flower design trends.


The North Holland town of Aalsmeer is located 13km southwest of Amsterdam and has been dubbed the flower capital of the world, as the largest flower auction in the world is held in Aalsmeer. The festival takes place in two locations: the Flower Art Museum, as well as at the Historical Garden (Historische Tuin), which is the horticultural museum of Aalsmeer.

The Flower Art Museum is the newest addition to this globally-renowned horticultural town. It is the world's first museum dedicated entirely to contemporary art inspired by flowers.
