    Schiphol Airport

    Schiphol airport would have to be one of the most user friendly airports I have ever been in. No hassles, well signposted and great amenities.

    At entry level is a plaza "Schiphol Plaza". It's great nearly anything you could want and a supermarket there as well. Also there is the train ticket window, if you don't want to use the machines.

  • thanks for your tips

    by karystena Written Feb 5, 2013

    Thanks for the links. Just found out that this may be a problem when I was looking for direct flights from Calgary to Manchester. They don't seem to start up again until May.
    Ottawa is thousands of miles away, and if I mail in my passport to renew it I don't know if I'd get it back in time. Also I won't be going near London, England to renew there. I'll try and find out more, but where I live (way out in the mountains)even to get passport photos done will require 4 hours of driving. And I don't have a Canadian passport, only EU (UK).

    You can easily reach Amsterdam Centraal by several trains per hour. It takes only 15 minutes. Schiphol railway station is located directly beneath the terminal complex of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and is operated by the Nederlandse Spoorwegen. The station's six platforms are accessible via twelve escalators and three elevators located in the main concourse of the airport (Schiphol Plaza).
    The Downtown can easily be reached from Schiphol Airport by car via the highways A4 and A9.

    You can watch my 3 min 22 sec Video Schiphol-Amsterdam Damrak out of my Youtube channel or or here on VT.

    You can easily reach Amsterdam Centraal by several trains per hour. It takes only 15 minutes. Schiphol railway station is located directly beneath the terminal complex of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and is operated by the Nederlandse Spoorwegen. The station's six platforms are accessible via twelve escalators and three elevators located in the main concourse of the airport (Schiphol Plaza).
    The original station was opened in 1978, and the current station was opened in 1995 (and I was among its first passengers). It connects the airport to Amsterdam and to various others cities in the Netherlands, as well as to Belgium, Germany and France.
    Train tickets for domestic travel are available from the yellow ticket machines near the platforms at Schiphol Plaza. Tickets (for domestic and international travel) are also available from the ticket offices, which are situated close to the red/white-checked cube at Schiphol Plaza. Staff at the ticket offices will also be able to provide you with train departure information.

    Schiphol Airport can easily be reached by car via the highways A4 and A9.

    For the local hotels around Schiphol and in the neighbouring villages of Hoofddorp, Badhoevedorp and Zwanenburg use the hotel-reservations switchboard located in the arrivals hall opposite the airport information desk.

    For the Amsterdam hotels the Connexxion Airport Hotel Shuttle Bus leaves 3 times per hour during office hours and stops at more than 50 major Amsterdam hotels. If you have booked a smaller Amsterdam hotel just inform at the hotel information desk where the closest stop is. Most drivers will drop you off in front, but not all smaller hotels have a loadzone.

    Yes is it possible to go to Schiphol by bicycle. From the center of Amsterdam go to the South-West through Sloten and cross the Ringvaart. In the village of Badhoevedorp just take the Sloterweg. Almost at the end there is a small bicycle path to the left going underneath the A4 Highway. Thereafter take a right to the Schipholtunnel. Once more go underground. From the tunnel take the direction you want to go to at Schiphol Center.

    The bicycle paths around Schiphol are part of the "knooppuntennetwerk Amstelland-Meerlanden" since 2008. The Netherlands gets an increasing number of charted cycle routes, which are connected at major junctions. These routes are published in special cycle maps and available at many bookshops.

    Schiphol has a charging location for E-bikes between the Sheraton Hotel and the Schiphol Plaza; see picture.

    Ticket machines in the luggage claim area.

    The first train ticket machines are located convinient at the luggage claim area (before customs clearance). More machines are located at the central Schiphol Plaza. You can use your (major) creditcard at these machines and avoid the additional surcharge when buying at the counter of the Schiphol Plaza Train Station.

    Be aware that the English menu by default offers you a "comfort" ticket, ergo a first class ticket. Just select the right kind of ticket if you want to travel second class.
    There are single fares and day return tickets; the latter only valid for travel forward and back on the same day (well, till 4AM the next day)!
