I have a trip coming up in a couple of weeks, traveling through Germany and the Czech Republic, and will be flying out of Prague, through Amsterdam (Schiphol Airport), to return back to the US and I have a couple of questions. I have a 7AM flight from Prague to Amsterdam on Czech Airlines, arriving in Amsterdam at 8:35 AM and then have a 12:25 PM flight from Amsterdam to NYC on Norwegian Air Shuttle. That leaves me 3 hrs and 50 minutes in Amsterdam. Both flights were booked separately.
-I really want to see Amsterdam but I was wondering if I had enough time to take the train and take a quick walk around the city and purchase some tulips for a family member. If there is enough time for this? Does anyone have any good ideas or suggestions of things for me to do or walks to take, or foods to try if I have enough time?
-Im assuming that since the flights were booked separately, I will have to get the one bag that I will check (already paid for) from the baggage claim and then re-check it for my second flight to NYC. Im also assuming that since Amsterdam is in the schengen area, that I wont have to go through customs in Amsterdam, only after I get off my flight in NYC. Am I thinking straight here, or do I have it all wrong?
