About Amsterdam Airport
The term Schiphol was derived from former fortification called “Fort Schipol” that belongs to “Stelling van Amsterdam” defense works. Prior to 1852, there was an existing large lake in the Haarlemmermeer polder, which is where the airline now lies. The lake’s shallow water typically experiences abrupt violent storms that claimed countless ships. Without a doubt, this becomes one of the major rationales why the “large lake” was reclaimed. The word “Schiphol” can be translated to ship Grave in English, which refers to countless of ships that vanished in the place.
