WELCOME TO ONE OF THE BUSIEST AIRPORTS IN EUROPE
The Netherlands’ main airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) processes over 50 million passengers each year. It services over 100 airlines, reaching over 300 destinations in 104 countries.

More than just an airport
For guests on short overnight stays or quick turnarounds, Schiphol offers abundant recreation options, including a spa, casino and museum. Visit the Rijksmuseum annex located behind passport control between Piers E and F, and you'll find a stunning display of art by Dutch masters from the Golden Age on loan from the city’s main Rijksmuseum. The collection rotates several times a year.
You can even get married at Schiphol. Tie the knot with an aviation themed wedding, whether you’re on a budget or throwing a lavish event. Go retro with a nostalgic 1930s-themed wedding aboard an old Dakota airplane. No matter what your specifications are, the wedding planner can customize your special day.
