This seventh edition of the international horticultural show in the Netherlands revolves entirely around Growing Green Cities. And that means so much more than lots of greenery. Think of new technologies, future products, and a focus on solutions to global urbanization, food supply, health, and energy generation. As such, the four sub-themes of Floriade 2022 are Greening the city, Feeding the city, Healthying the City and Energizing the City, topics that are showcased in countless pavilions and the huge greenhouse complex as well as in the arboretum and rich art and culture program.

Growing Green Cities

How can you make a densely built city more green, fun, livable and sustainable? This is the question that Floriade seeks to answer in 2022. And there is no better place to explore sustainable green urban development than Almere’s city center! The living lab, as Floriade is nicknamed affectionately, showcases Almere’s aim to be a green city on the one hand, and the way in which the horticultural sector strives for continuous innovation in sustainability and food production on the other. Floriade does so by bringing innovative stakeholders from around the world together to present their horticultural best to consumers and peers.

The arboretum is the Floriade Expo’s green engine, a gigantic living tree, flower and plant library that is a feast to all nature lovers. The trees and plants are organized by their botanical names as designed by the architect and urban planner Winny Maas.

Floriade Preview

Floriade is the international horticultural show that is organized in the Netherlands every ten years since 1960, an imposing event in a different location every time. After Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Zoetermeer, and Venlo, it is now Almere’s privilege to provide the green backdrop and welcome visitors from around the world.

Don’t want to wait until 2022? Floriade Preview is an opportunity to enjoy the Expo as early as 2021. Naturally, the entire site is under intense construction up to the opening but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to see. To the contrary! And because the aerial cableway is already open during the Preview period, you can follow developments from the air while having a first view of the wonderful things that Floriade will have to offer from April 2022 onwards.
