How To Access The Viewing Deck At EHAM/AMS

Mon Apr 11, 2016 2:24 pm

Two quick questions:
1. Is the observation deck at Amsterdam (EHAM/AMS) still open to the public?
2. Is it possible to access this when transiting through the airport as a passenger?

I have a few hours to kill when travelling via Schiphol at the weekend, and thought I'd have a look at the observation deck if the weather was ok.

1: Yes. But AFAIK there if only one entrance now. There should be signs that direct you to it.
2: No, the deck is on landside. You will have to go through immigration on your way to the deck and through security/immigration on the way to airside.

I see.
With regards to point 2, would that normally take long? (I don't know what the security waiting time is like at AMS, as I normally just pass through.

9 out of 10 times I'm through in a matter of minutes.
Luggage can take longer, but that would be of no concern to you.

The terrace is easy to find and everybody that works there knows it.....so ask!

Why would he have to take his luggage? If he is on a connecting flight he can just exit the sterile area through immigration and then go back through security when he needs to get to his flight.
I did it in February and it didn't take long to get out and back in again.
