World's first Airport Park at Schiphol

Along with a library and a museum, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol recently added a park in its list of attractions.

Officially opened by Princess Irene, the first Airport Park in the world offers a "haven of tranquillity" with a terrace, trees, chairs upholstered in ivy and wooden picnic benches.

Daylight enters the park through tube lighting and fibre optics cables, while "mixed reality" technology brings the park to life: images of famous parks are displayed on the walls, projections, and sounds of animals, bicycle bells and children playing.

Note that travellers can also recharge their mobile phones by pedalling one of the energy generating bicycles.

The Airport Park is located behind the Schiphol Airport's D Gates.
