Understand

Although containing large stretches of the archetypal Dutch polder landscape, the area is one of the country's primary economic powerhouses, focusing mostly on financial services and logistics. Partly because a large part of the area, the Haarlemmermeer polder, was a lake until 1852, there is relatively little old architecture.

Get in

Many visitors to the Netherlands will actually arrive in Amstelland itself, as Schiphol Airport lies within it.

Get around

From Schiphol, you can take the train to the north, to Amsterdam, or to the south, to Hoofddorp, Nieuw-Vennep and further to Leiden. Also, there are many buses services, including ones to Haarlem, Amstelveen and Uithoorn.
