Daytrip: Floriade 2012 in Venlo - Once in a decade 'World Horticultural Expo'

  • Jul 21, 2012 · 8:00 AM
  • Amsterdam Central Station

Check out the official sites:
NL: http://www.floriade.nl/
EN: http://www.floriade.com/
DE: http://www.floriade.de/

Venlo is all the way down south of Netherlands :)


Excerpts:
"Be a part of the theatre of nature! A theatre you’ll experience with all your senses, because you’ll be playing the leading role alongside nature. Where you’ll learn about nature and find out just how important flowers, plants, trees, vegetables and fruit are in our daily lives. Where you can listen to beautiful music. And enjoy a relaxing moment or two dangling your feet in the water.
Everywhere you go there is something new and surprising to discover. Together we will make Floriade 2012 a world of fascination. Spectacular and relaxing. Educational and fun. Active and contemplative.

The Floriade Park covers 66 hectares and encompasses 5 unique themed worlds separated by wooded areas. Each world has its own decor, programme and activities. Worlds in which you'll see, feel and experience nature in a totally different way each time."

There are tons of things to see there and almost every day has special events going on! See their calendar: http://www.floriade.com/calendar

Note:
If you are planning to go by train, NS has a combo-offer: return ticket to Venlo & entry to Floriade costs just EUR 35 (if you buy separately, its almost double). Offer valid till 30 July. http://www.spoordeelwinkel.nl/product/juni/floriade


Plan for Saturday:

1) 09:08 Amsterdam Centraal platform 4, reaching Eindhoven at 10:29

2) 10:32 Eindhoven platform 2, reaching Venlo at 11:13

3) Shuttle bus to Floriade

My number: [masked]. Do not forget to get a printout of the tickets. See link above for buying a combo ticket. Let's meet at the platform directly. See you all on Sat.

    Hello All! I just got my combi ticket and wanted to comment on this purchase to make sure we all understand what to do (as it is in Dutch) ;) I got 2 emails. One of them contained pdf (1 page) with entrance to Floriade and the other one contained the code that you need to generate your train ticket. You click on the code and then set the date and put your name & birthday and you get again a pdf file with your ticket (1 page);) I hope I got it right ;)
