Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is the main gateway of the Netherlands, 20 minutes drive from the capital. Around 50 million passengers use its services every year. Schiphol is the fourth largest airport in Europe in terms of passengers. It received the Best European Airport award many times. That's why it is a worthy competitor to airports in Berlin, Paris and London. The airport layout is unusual. There is only one terminal there. It occupies a huge area and is divided into 3 waiting halls, each of which has a few piers. Schiphol is one of the most convenient in Europe. Long waiting for a flight in this airport is not tedious. One won't notice the time. There are plenty of shopping malls, restaurants, cafes and other entertainments on the airport premises. You can even hold a wedding ceremony there and head for a honeymoon from the airport to any place on the planet right away. Getting from Schiphol to the centre of Amsterdam is easy. You can be thrifty and take a train. The railway station is located in the airport. If you need to go to the southern part of the city, it is better to take a bus that runs on regular schedule. And if you have a lot of luggage, it makes sense to take a taxi.
