Cheap Flights from Edmonton International to Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a contradiction of old and new experiences and traditions. From the 7th-century Golden Age city center to the infamous Red Light District, Amsterdam proves it's unlike any other city. And since Amsterdam was the first major municipality across the globe to legalize gay marriage, it's also the most accepting LGBT city in the world.
Arriving at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS)
Canadians flying out of Edmonton International into Amsterdam will land at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS). Amsterdam Schiphol is the primary international airport of Amsterdam and the third busiest airport in Europe with over 63 million passengers and almost 500,000 annual flights. The large, bright, single terminal has three departure halls and is a hub for dozens of airlines including Delta, Condor, AirFrance, United, and Icelandair. Amenities include free WIFI, several spas, a fitness centre, a library, Holland Casino, national museum annex, prayer rooms, and a typical mall's worth of shopping and dining options. AMS also performs dream weddings.
If you decide you want to leave the airport, Amsterdam has some of the best public transit in Europe. Domestic and high-speed Intercity Direct trains, as well as six bus lines, are caught at the Schiphol Plaza, right outside of the Arrivals and Departures Halls. Schiphol Hotel Shuttle operates from bus platform A7. Taxis are fast, albeit expensive options for getting into town. Expect to pay 39EUR (C$59) for the service. And car rental agencies can be found directly behind Arrivals 3 if you decide to drive.
Things to Do in Amsterdam
Rent a bike and wind your way through the city for a truly intimate introduction. Amsterdam is home to 50 world-class museums such as Van Gogh Museum, Museumplein, and Rijksmuseum. Visit 20+ breathtakingly beautiful churches and synagogues. Hop over to Bloemenmarkt, the world's first and only floating flower market. Visit De Poezenboot, the only floating boat in the world devoted to abandoned cats. Enjoy some retail therapy at Kalverstraat, De Negen Straatjes, Magna Plaza, or the less crowded Haarlemmerdijk.
Tour the coffee shops and try the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup. Visit Dam Square. Try the local delicacies. Climb the 40-metre tower at the Westertoren. Party at the Ruigoord and Landjuweel Festival. Take a gondola ride. And if your personal interests lean that way, head into the newly revamped Red Light District where much of the cliché has transformed into local character and quality entertainment.
Amsterdam Travel Tips
Violent crime is practically nonexistent in the Netherlands, but pickpocketing, bag grabbing, and other petty crime are serious problems in Amsterdam. Thieves also like to hang out at train stops to grab and go, so be vigilant at all times and lock your valuables away. While smoking marijuana is fine, cigarettes are illegal in public. Summer is the main tourist season. Right before or right after summer is the best time to enjoy Amsterdam without worrying about crowd control. Always trust Skyscanner to help you plan a memorable Amsterdam escape.
