🗺️ Location & Plan

At 12:00pm
We’ll meet on the Panorama Terrace; a viewing deck that allows you to view the aircraft and ramp up close. To get here, head to Departure Hall 1, and take the stairs or escalator to the second floor. From here you’ll find clear signage pointing you into the direction of the Panorama Terrace.

We’ll be here until 2:00pm. The terrace is the ideal location, not only for watching planes, but for facilities too. There are plenty of options for food & drink if you get a bit hungry!


From 2:30pm to 4:30pm
We’ll be at the well known Polderbaan spotting location. Although it’s a bit tricky to get to this spot, it’s a must, especially for this meetup! This location offers incredible views of the arriving or departing traffic on runway 36L/18R. There’s even a fast food truck here…

⚠️ As mentioned, getting to this spot can be difficult at times, so we’ve highlighted a few travel options below:

  1. Take the 300 bus from Haarlem Station to Vijfhuizen (23 min), then take the 37 min walk to the Polderbaan - This is lengthy and not very ideal, but it’s an option.
  2. Try to catch a taxi or order an Uber. Some drivers are reluctant to do this route due to it being very short. One thing to keep in mind!
  3. Drive! If you have a car, you can make your own way to the Polderbaan stress free. If you are driving and have some spare seats, it would be highly appreciated if you could consider giving some folks a ride to the Polderbaan.
  4. One last option is to take the 300 bus from Haarlem Station to Vijfhuizen, and then grab a lift from somebody at the end of the bus ride to avoid the 37 minute walk from the station to the Polderbaan. Of course this is only an option is someone is willing to do a few lifts in their car.

NOTE: This is the proposed plan for the day, and hopefully it remains this way. If not, we have a number of contingency plans in mind. We’ll fully communicate any changes to this plan in any are made. Keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels and especially this thread. You can set this thread to watching to receive notifications for each reply.
