Quite an accomplishment, building an entire province from scratch. Still, that’s exactly how Flevoland came into being: manmade land, a good four metres below sea level and secured by miles of dykes. But then Flevoland is never really finished. Probably something to do with that twentieth-century soil under our feet we reckon; it seems to exert an effect on people. Nowhere else offers more space for innovative ideas than right here. As all Flevolanders are well aware: the sky is the limit.
Orchideeën Hoeve (Orchid Farm) is the must-see of the flower attractions. The entirely covered park (25,000 m2) offers a breathtaking experience of the power and beauty of nature, where the visitor is led through an exclusive piece of the tropics. On the way you will be dazzled by the unique flora. And the variety of animals which live here, including monkeys, fish and butterflies, will ensure memorable encounters you’ll treasure. The SkyFlora Garden is also a recent addition: an enormous 'floating' sea of flowers, created by thousands of summer blooms.
