Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands has opened its newly renovated Holland Boulevard public area for passengers in transit.
Located between Departure Lounges 2 and 3, the upgraded public area has been designed to reflect Dutch art and culture.
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Consumer Products and Services director Tanja Dik said: “We have renovated Holland Boulevard to enhance the comfort and travelling pleasure for our passengers. I am proud that Amsterdam Airport Schiphol can offer this experience.”
“Holland Boulevard is a place for you to stretch your legs after a flight, to go wandering amongst the Dutch masters, to curl up with a good book on a comfortable settee, to enjoy a fellow passenger’s piano playing or to enjoy attractive shops and restaurants.”
The area features a new library with approximately 500 books, which have been translated into more than 40 languages for foreign travellers.
It is also equipped with touchscreens that provide information about Dutch culture.
In addition, the refurbished Rijksmuseum annex provides an introduction to 17th century Dutch painting, while the NEMO Science Museum features activities for children.
Designed by NEXT Architects, the Holland Boulevard public area is built behind the security checkpoint in the part of the intercontinental travellers.
