UnderstandEdit

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 inEdit

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