Holland - Floriade Flower Show Extravaganza Once Again in 2012!

Jump to last reply

http://www.floriade.com/

Floriade, the Dutch flower extravaganza held only every decade or so by the major growers.

This year the pulchritudinous affair takes root in Venlo, in southweast Netherlands smack up against the German border and will bloom there thru the summer.

IME avoid weekends when crowds swell.

Venlo is a town I know extremely well, having stayed there for days on end on business in the past (but not recent) years - it is a ho-hum but pleasant town on the Mass (?) river - forget if it is the Maas or Muese?)

Anyway Venlo is an easy day trip from Amsterdam by train or car - Arnhem and Nijmegen or two cities nearby that could make nice bases for the flower show as well.
