Schiphol Vacations

Schiphol is an interesting place to spend some time when in Amsterdam, the capital of Netherlands. Approximately 750,000 live in Amsterdam. Schiphol is situated less than 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from Schiphol Airport, and just 7 miles (11 kilometers) from the city center.

Schiphol is near a diverse collection of Amsterdam’s well-known sights. Two of the most popular attractions here are the fabulous Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Schiphol and the remarkable World Trade Center Schiphol Airport. Also, be sure to check out the Business Park Schiphol-Rijk and the Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp.

Be sure to visit some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make this region such a great vacation choice. Take a guided tour, admire the building in which it is housed or simply enjoy the wonderful artworks at the Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum. Culture vultures can enjoy a night of great entertainment at venues such as Concertgebouw, the De Meervaart Theater and Schouwburg Amstelveen in Amstelveen.

If the sun is shining, do what the locals do and appreciate the nearby green spaces. There are some great gardens and parks, so why not take a break in Rembrandt Park.

For some retail therapy, visit the Aalsmeer Flower Auction in Aalsmeer and the World Fashion Centre.
