3-4 Hours On Sunday In AMS - Where To Take Photos?

Tue Aug 24, 2004 6:39 am

Hello,

On Sunday, 29 August, I will transfer through Amsterdam with following connection:
KL1756 BREAMS Arr 1535
KL1749 AMSLUX Dep 1945

I guess I will have about 3 hours available between the two flights. Am I right assuming that - without a car - it does not make sense to go anywhere else than the terrace? Or is there maybe a bus service or a footpath to an interesting photo location?

Thanks a lot for any input!

Cheers,
Thomas

There's one spot which can be reached on foot and that's the taxiway near the cargo area. It's a 15 min walk from the terminal. Here you see most cargo aircraft and smaller intra-European traffic roll by at very close range. If you exit the terminal, walk all the way left and follow the road until you pass under the taxiway bridge. Then go left to the parkinglot at the end.
It's spot "9c" on this map:

Good luck!
Eduard

Eduard, Peter,
Thanks for your replies and sorry for not answering earlier, but my *@€&%$ -internet connection did not work from the hotel...

Due to the bad weather I decided to stay inside. Besides I was wondering if there is much traffic at the 9C spot as all aircraft that I saw taxied around the terminals to get to their runways. My flight to Bremen went from the Cityhopper apron around the whole airport, crossing 18/36C and then departing on 36L. Took 20min until we were airborne. Well, at least I got a free sightseeing tour in AMS  Big grin

Cheers,
Thomas

Taxiway Sierra (spot 9c) was closed this week due to maintenance so no traffic over there.

Kind regards,
