- Duration: 4 Days
- Location: Papendrecht
- Product code: PZX1CJ
Every 10 years the incredible Floriade Horticultural Exhibition is created in Holland, showcasing the best Flora and Fauna concepts from around the World.
Open for 6 months, the 2022 show is located in the city of Almere, only a short distance from Amsterdam. During Floriade, the Dutch horticulture sector, in conjunction with national and international participants, will exhibit green solutions that can make cities more fun, liveable and sustainable.
The massive Floriade park will be a celebration of green and sustainable technology with ideas and concepts for now and the future. The park consists of permanent elements and expo-specific ones. All contribute to Floriade’s four sub-themes: Greening the City, Feeding the City, Healthying the City and Energising the City. Inspiring gardens, conferences, workshops and exhibitions will be mixed with impressive attractions, surprising tasting sessions, art and culture.
Over 40 countries will be represented, bringing ideas and national pavilions presenting their culture, plants and flowers. The legacy for the park will include permanent houses that will become part of the green urban district - Hortus. Take a birds eye view of the entire parkland from the 850m cable car and enjoy a wide range of culture including exhibitions, live music from classical to jazz, entertainment and orchestras.

We also visit the amazing spectacle of Keukenhof Gardens - situated in a huge 32 hectare park of trees, ponds and fountains and is often described as ‘the greatest flower display on Earth’. In the spring, millions of tulips, hyancinths and daffodils burst in to bloom covering large areas of the gardens and attracting visitors from all over the world.
