While the low lying area where Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport sits is perfect for landing planes, it also acts as a giant megaphone, amplifying the roar of the engines.

As you can imagine the people of Amsterdam weren’t thrilled about this… so they designed beautiful maze-like landscapes around the airport that would cut the decibel level in half! Not to mention giving those flying into Amsterdam something interesting to look at!
