Welcome to Amsterdam Airport’s famous Polderbaan spotting location. It is a place for aviation freaks and families alike that is alive with airport action movements from dawn to dusk, and even later for the hard-core keeners. Aviation photographers will love the location, specially spotters and reggie bashers.
As there are few such choice locations in the world where all the action can be soaked up so close to the runway without the hassle of glass or a fence to block the view. This is uniquely Amsterdam, with her waterway canals acting as security barriers between landside and the aircraft operating area of the aerodrome.
But that doesn’t stop the ducks and mallards from going where they please, making the Polderbaan spotting location great of bird spotters too! But the real attraction here are the widebodies rotating right in front of you at full speed, with engines howling at full throttle for take-off.
Reaching this location is no easy feat without a vehicle. The closest bus stop requires a one hour hike to reach the Polderbaan spotting location parking lot. But it is worth the effort to reach what is possibly the best airport spotting location on the planet. Watch this video and decide for yourself!
