About us

Let us take you behind the scenes of the biggest airport of the Netherlands. The Schiphol Experience is a bus tour that shows you all the secrets of the airport. How does the fire department operate? What does a hangar look like from up close? What happens when it snows? All these questions will be answered during the Schiphol Experience. You’ll also get a look back into history, with a guide on the bus telling you all about the beginnings and the first ever flight that took off at the airport. You will also learn about the biggest mystery of all: where does that unpronounceable name ‘Schiphol’ come from?

Join us on the Schiphol Experience!
