We have an 8 hour lay-over in Amsterdam. We have to be at the airport two hours before our 8:00pm flight, so I estimate that we have 6 hours.
We have never been to the Netherlands, and we have no knowledge of the geography of the city or proximity to the airport.
Does anyone know if there is something we can do outside the airport for about six hours, or would it be wiser to just camp out in the Sky Lounge? If we leave the airside portion of the airport do we need a visa or some thing other than our passport to enter the country?
Is there any place in the airport where we can check our hand luggage?
Is the airport itself large? Are there some interesting shops and choices for food?
I do not want to do anything that involves any type of risk that we might miss our flight out of AMS. We are Senior Citizens and neither of us can do much walking.
We would appreciate suggestions from experts.
