The Floriade is the largest horticultural show in the Netherlands held every 10 years. This edition is located in Venlo, in the south of the Netherlands which seems a good choice when you see the diverse nationalities (German and Belgian) visiting the exhibition.
The layout of the entire park is a great (landscape) design by Arcadis. The five thematic areas are each given an own identity (very clear in foothpaths and benches) and are divided by beautiful pieces of native forest accessible over a wooden deck.
