7-Hour LAYOVER IN AMS...BEST USE OF TRANSIT TIME?

Jump to last reply

En route to JFK from JNB, we are scheduled to arrive in AMS at 10:20am, with departure at
5:55pm. It had not occurred to me to travel into the city, but after speaking with locals who we happened to meet while traveling in South AFrica, it appesrs that we do have time. My travel partner has never been to Amsterdam, and it has been years since I have visited this lovely city.

QUESTION: Our luggage will be checked through to JFK, but what about carry ons? Where to store these at AMS if we decide to take a quick train trip into the city?
Might it be possible to store these in Business Lounge at AMS upon arrival?

What about having lunch in AMS? Do we even have enough time to do this?

Since I had no intention of leaving the airport on the return trip, I have not done any research on this possibility, and do not have good wireless connections where I am now lodged...many thanks!!
