    POLDERBAAN

    polderbaan-schiphol

    Getting to the new Polderbaan aircraft-spotters place is quite complicated ...

    Take the highway A4, and turn off to the right/left to Aalsmeer, ...
    (depends where you come from, direction Amsterdam-Schiphol or The Hague-Schiphol)

    You will drive right onto the Kruisweg.

    Turn to the left when coming from The Hague,
    turn to the right when from Amsterdam.

    Just follow the Kruisweg straight on ...

    After about 6 kilometres turn to the right into the Adrianahoeve ...

    Follow the road for about 200 metres (you'll pass a part of the small village Hoofddorp).

    When you get to the IJweg,... turn to the right on the IJweg!

    Drive for about 2 kilometres (is like a farmer's road) ...

    You will see a no through road, still named the IJweg!

    Drive into that no through road straight on, and you will see the square at the right where the plane-spotters place is ... named >>>

    no more smoking once you checked in or when arriving you can only smoke outside...
    enough restaurants when youre hungry or thirsty.
    lots of shops, some cheaper than others, so have a look in several shops before buying drinks or cigarettes.
    checkin time most of the time 2 hrs before flight.

    TRANSPORTATION TO AMSTERDAM

    Schiphol to Amsterdam transportation options

    The most asked question in the travel forum is how one can travel from the Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam downtown.

    I got the feeling the airport authorities kept an eye at Virtual Tourist, because an electronic screen has been put up at immigration where you queue for passport control.

    On he screen the different options are outlined with the related costs and time involved.

    All these options and some more are given in detailed in my listed Schiphol transportation tips below.

    Schiphol is the Netherlands' main airport and is located just south of Amsterdam.

    In 2004, Schiphol ranked fourth in Europe in terms of passenger traffic behind London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Frankfurt International Airport.

    It has large shopping areas and Schiphol Plaza is a shopping centre before customs. There is a supermarket and Food Village that is open until midnight seven days a week.

    Dutchbird plane

    Never had heard of Dutchbird before, but dad and I did like flying with them!
    We flew an airbus 320 and were very well served ... even had brekkie! on our way to Barçelona and when coming back, we had dinner!
    Made up for not being allowed to smoke ;-)

    Haven t been in too many airports yet but I prefer Schiphol airport above Barcelona and Toronto because of the friendlyness and all.
    I might be chauvinistic but that s my humble opinion.

  • Hotel Shuttle Busses

    Our hotel

    There are quite a few shuttle busses that connect the hotels of Schiphol with the airport. Depending on the hotel they go 2-3 times an hour. Departure is at the right end of Schiphol Plaza when facing away from it.

    There you will also find a free telephone you can use for contacting the different hotels.

    Some of the busses are rather small so you would want to be there early (especially when departing from your hotel). The drivers are not allowed to take more people than the bus has seats. I wouldn't want to be kicked out when having a plane to catch. I warned ya ;)

    Schiphol's underground train station

    There's also international connections to Germany or Belgium as well as a lot of connections to cities in the Netherlands.

    To places like The Hague, Utrecht or Rotterdam and other bigger Dutch cities there's a train about every half an hour.

  • Trains to Amsterdam Centraal

    The train to Schiphol

    Every 15 mts or something there is a train that connects Schiphol's underground train station with Amsterdam's main station, Amsterdam Centraal.

    I never quite understood the difference between the three tickets available for this ride but a return ticket costs EURO 5.60. Make sure to have coins with ya, the machines don't accept Euro bills!

    The train to Amsterdam Centraal takes approx. 15 minutes.

    us in the train

    Since my dad and I are rather slwo in the mornings, it was decided we were to travel to Amsterdam airport the day before.
    I got a special card that gives me discount on train fare so it wasn t too big an investment.

    We had a good time and there were no major problems during the time we were in the train.

    Take the train

    by Imaniac Written Jan 2, 2004
    Schiphol Station

    If you wanna go to Schiphol airport the easiest way of doing so is by going by train. The train will take you to the heart of Schiphol, so you don't need to take a bus or a taxi afterwards. Most trains come from the south or the west. For those directions you have to change trains in Duivendrecht Station (Between Amsterdam and Utrecht).

    Cheap busses and expensive taxis

    Central square of mainport Schiphol

    To those destinations that are not connected by train, one could choose to go to by bus. They are waiting for the passengers at the central square in front of Schiphol Plaza. Busses are comfortable and have many stops. Big chance it brings you very close to your point of intrest. Okay, they are not that fast, but ... who needs fast on a holiday!
    Taxis are available on the same place, however keep in mind that a taxi is terrible expensive in The Netherlands. The drivers are polite and know the littlest street or alley in a large range, but ... the meter is running!

    Buying traintickets to any direction

    by Pavlik_NL Written Aug 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Even the stewardesses of KLM do not only fly!

    In Schiphol Plaza there are two ways in getting a trainticket. The windows at the large counters of the NS (watch for the blue-yellow colours surrounding it). Here you will be helped personally (doesn't cost anything more) and this is the best way if you need extra information.
    The other fast way is the ticketing-machines that are on the central square (see picture). In these you can find postalcodes of all destinations in The Netherlands and order a one way (enkele reis) or to-from (retour). The machines take cash as well as various pin- and credit-cards.
