Discover Floriade: a large scale horticultural exhibition in the Netherlands

04 Feb 2022  |  Inspiration, To Do

After having to wait for a while, the day has (almost) finally come! From April 14th 2022, and for half a year onwards, the city of Almere will transform into the décor of the world horticultural exhibition: Floriade Expo 2022.  

Floriade Expo 2022

Ever since 1960, the Netherlands has been organising Floriade: the world horticultural exhibition. Every ten years the location of this imposing event changes, this year landing the event in Almere. With over 60 hectares of space, 40 inspiring country representations, and even a cable car, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this ‘living lab’ is seen as the world’s most important horticultural exhibition. 

Growing Green Cities

This 7th edition of the world horticultural exhibition is dedicated to the theme ‘Growing Green Cities’ and shows greener solutions, which make our cities more enjoyable, more liveable, and more sustainable. Which is quite relevant, since when you look at the forecast for 2050, it is expected that a whopping 68% of the world population will be living in a city. And that on only 2% of the earth’s surface… 

What to do at Floriade

There’s more than enough to experience at Floriade Expo 2022. The gardens and pavilions offer plenty of inspiration, you can find different stores, and there are more than enough establishments to enjoy some food and drinks. In addition, there even is a rich art and culture programme. And how about a cable cart ride overlooking the whole park?
