As flights to Amsterdam descend from the clouds, the first things passengers notice are the canals—more than 1,200 of them—each with its fair share of charming houseboats. After all, there is a reason this city is nicknamed the “Venice of the North.” Once you've landed at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) and take the short journey into the city, you are free to immerse yourself in the rich history, vibrant nightlife, and fascinating art. And such an immersion it will be.
Passengers arriving on Amsterdam flights have many options for getting into the city. You can rent a car to travel from the airport to downtown Amsterdam; all the main car rental agencies are found in Schiphol Plaza, right behind Arrivals 3. Alternatively, buy train tickets from the yellow ticket machines and take a 15-minute train journey from the station one floor below the airport concourse into the city. Taxis are a convenient way to get into Amsterdam and are available in single and shared-customer options; only take a taxi from those in the queue. Many Amsterdam hotels offer shuttle buses, and this is the easiest and most inexpensive way to travel from the airport. In short, there’s no need to worry about getting around. Book your plane tickets to Amsterdam and leave the fretting at the door.
It will not take you long to make your way into the downtown area, but sometimes, you simply cannot wait to get your vacation underway.
