Art & Culture

Lovers of art and culture are well catered for in Aalsmeer. The historic Watertoren Aalsmeer can be seen standing proudly on the banks of the Westeinderplassen; an architectural highlight from which you can enjoy magnificent views far beyond Aalsmeer. Another must for art lovers is the Flower Art Museum, with a wide collection of flower art. For people who like to roll up their sleeves and create their own flower arrangements, then the place to visit is the renowned Boerma Institute.

Flower art and many more to discover

Meet the local: Constantijn from the Flower Art Museum

Meet the local Constantijn: “The beauty of Aalsmeer is that it’s still a real village. A truly charming village with a windmill situated in its centre. It has its share of local tradesmen who own (family) shops, some of which have existed for more than 100 years. But at the same time, it also has a cosmopolitan feel about it. It is internationally renowned for its flower trade. There are members of the Aalsmeer business sector who travel internationally as part of their jobs but who personally remain very attached to the village.”
