Shops and café patios at Schiphol open as of 28 April
In Tuesday's press conference, the Dutch government announced that shops and the outdoor seating areas of restaurants, bars and cafés could reopen under certain conditions as of 28 April. In addition, the nightly curfew is being lifted.
This means that all shops at Schiphol, both before and after security, will be open from 28 April. You no longer need to make an appointment to enter a shop, but there is a maximum number of customers allowed inside. Non-essential shops may be open between 06:00 and 20:00. The usual opening hours apply to essential shops at Schiphol, such as supermarkets, drug stores, the pharmacy, Service Point (Plaza), Seal & Go and financial services like banks.
The outdoor areas at Café Rembrandt and La Place will be open between 12:00 and 18:00 starting from 28 April. A maximum of two people from different households or various members of the same household are allowed per table. Customers must be seated. If you want to make use of these areas, you can reserve a table upon arrival.
The nightly curfew that prohibited people from being outside between 22:00 and 04:30 is being lifted at 04:30 on 28 April.
