2 Hours In AMS-can I Make It To The View Terrace?

Sun Apr 03, 2005 11:01 am

I will be flying ATL-AMS in June and then connecting on to PRG. I wanted to ask, my connection time is exactly 2 hours, 20min. In this time, considering no delays, can I make it to the view terrace to make plane-spotting ans take some nice pictures? If yes, where the terrace is located?How do I get there? I know that people loves this terrace for the very nice views on widebodies.
Thanks in advance,
Regards,

Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter):

yes you will have enough time

go out through customs and follow the signs

you will have about 30-60 minutes there depending on the time in line at passport control

After you get past customs and arrive in Schipol Plaza (which is the area you enter as soon as you go through the doors after baggage pick-up) look for the Burger King (you can't miss it). When you're facing Burger King, look to your right side and you'll see some stairs a few meters away, thats what you want. Just go up the stairs and there you are! You can't miss it, it's all signed out as well! Have a good time!

Adam,

Coming from ATL on Delta or KLM?

DL uses the G-concourse, so if you go through customs in Arrival Area 3, that Burger King is a 2 minute walk. The stairway up is in the corner next to the Supermarket "Food Village" which is opposite to BK.

Traveling to PRG you will probably depart from the D- or E-concourse. Boarding is 30 minutes before departure time, but be aware of long queues before Immigration!

Have fun!

I´m flying with KLM from ATL, arrival in AMS at 8:00am. My flight to PRG is operated by OK at 10:20 that always leaves from D-concourse.
Thanks to every one, I will try it then.

In my experience, thats a bit tight. I personally wouldn't risk anything under 2 hours, but thats just me.
