Why be bored while waiting to board your flight?¬† Amsterdam‚Äôs Schiphol Airport guarantees that you won‚Äôt 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‚Äôt 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‚Äô 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‚Äôre 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 ‚ÄúBack to Life‚Äù massage or take a seat in the Massage-O-Matic chair. The ‚ÄúBack to Life‚Äù 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‚Äôve listed.¬† What is the best airport you‚Äôve used?
