If you fly to The Netherlands you will arrive here and land below the sea level.
Schiphol is one of the European Main Airports.
There is one terminal building with 7 Piers.
All arrival halls exit to the main Schiphol Plaza indoors area, where you find the train station, hotel booking service, car rentals etc.
Taxi, shuttle service and bus station are outside in front of the Plaza; the train platforms are in the basement.

The "old" Schiphol now is called Schiphol Oost and is used for private VIP flights and cargo and maintenance activities.
The new terminal building was extended with the Schiphol Plaza hall, when the sub terrainian train tracks were constructed.
Have a look at the Main Traffic Control Tower.
Since 2003 there is a fifth runway with its own control tower.
In November 2005 Pier H opened, special for low budget carriers.
Expect no service (in contradiction to the other piers), so no toilets, no shops and walking in the open air to your plane.
Here's a map including the new runway #5 and the new A5 interconncting highway (in the middle North-South).
Schiphol tries to limit sound nuisance of the approaching and departing planes; more information at:
NOMOS Airplane noise measurements and Geluidsnet
