Fun at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

By 1800FlyEurope in Destination Highlights | on January 25th, 2011

Why be bored while waiting to board your flight?  Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport guarantees that you won’t be.  Here are just a few good reasons you should use the Schiphol Airport, other than for a cheap flight to Amsterdam.

Good Reads Forgot to bring something to read during your layover, but don’t feel like spending the cash for a new book?  No worries, just visit the Airport Library!  Travelers are given access to a plethora of music, movies and books.  The library is meant for use only while in the airport, meaning visitors cannot check out items for later return, but it is a welcome change from the same ol’ bookstores and newspaper stands.  An added bonus: the library offers educational movies on Dutch culture for free download to your mobile device.

Good Odds If you’re looking for a little fun and excitement, head on down to the Holland Casino, located right in the airport!  The casino offers Blackjack, Slot Machines, Roulette and more!  Please note: you must be at least 18 years old and have your boarding pass and valid identification to enter the casino.

Good Feelings A great way to begin or end your trip to Amsterdam is to book a “Back to Life” massage or take a seat in the Massage-O-Matic chair. The “Back to Life” is an oil-free massage, performed by a masseuse; clients sit in a chair while they have their legs, neck, back, arms and head are treated.  The latter is a chair in which you insert money to receive a shiatsu style massage.

Good Culture One of the most popular features of the airport is the Rijksmuseum.  Open daily, this famous art museum showcases works by the Dutch Golden Age Masters (on permanent exhibition), as well as temporary exhibitions three times per year.

This is just a small number of activities available to travelers; there is much more to do at the Schiphol Airport than just what I’ve listed.  What is the best airport you’ve used?
