Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (airport code AMS) is located just 14 kilometers southwest of this capital city. Schiphol Airport has one terminal, which is divided into six piers (B through G) extending out from a central plaza. From Schiphol passengers can hop a 20-minute Direct Rail Link train to Amsterdam's Centraal Station and then connect to trains traveling throughout the Netherlands and into Germany and Belgium. From canals to coffee, Amsterdam is a relaxing city with few cars because the residents either walk or ride bikes. Strolling can be an outdoor activity along the tree-lined streets or indoor at one of the city's many famous art museums. Schiphol Airport is a destination unto itself because of its open-air promenade and observation deck on top of the terminal building and the mini-Rijksmuseum featuring a permanent collection of the 17th Century Dutch Masters located on Holland Boulevard, between Piers E and F.
