On April 4, 2012 the Floriade, the World Horticultural Expo in Venlo, was inaugurated officially.

For the transport on the exposition site, a detachable 8-seater Gondola was completed and put into operation in 2011. Alongside many prominent guests, Queen Beatrix did herself the honour of visiting the opening ceremony.

With a trip time of 5 minutes, the gondola transports up to 2,200 passengers per hour and direction with its 45 cabins and offers the visitors spectacular views on the archaeological sites from the Celtic age and the marvellous sea of flowers.
