Departing the pier aboard your air-conditioned motor coach, enjoy the approximately 30-minute journey to Aalsmeer. Here, you will visit the enormous buildings where plants and flowers are stored before they go to the auction floors. Stroll along the two auction halls and watch in amazement as tulips, roses and other plants zip by on carts on their way to their new owners. After their sale, the plants are shipped same-day for destinations such as Germany, Spain and the USA.

Following your introduction to this exciting auction house, rejoin your motor coach for the scenic transfer though Amsterdam sights. Pass by Royal Palace and Nieuwe Kerk located in Dam Square, proceed to the museum area for a drive past the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum before returning to the pier and your Crystal ship.
