As an Indonesian passport holder you need the correct visa to enter or transit the Schengen zone.

For things to do in Schiphol -

Schiphol is one of the best there is to kill time in. Indeed, in one survey, it was recently rated the no.1 airport in the world for layovers. There is a casino, a grand piano available for travellers to play, good shopping, a Meditation room for all religions, two spas ( one offers massages) and a wide variety of bars and restaurants. If you feel the need to do so, you may also take a shower at the Hotel Mercure 24 hours a day (€ 15) or go to the top floor , close to the Meditation room where there are free showers ( bring your own towels ). The Yotel Amsterdam Schiphol has pod type rooms available for a minimum of four hours if you want some privacy, a shower etc. They now also have two shower rooms available (also for €15) which you can book by the hour.

For those who like to smoke this can now be done in designated areas in some bars and restaurants locatd throughout the airport. Just look for the large glassed off smoking areas.

Plenty other things to do in the airport https:/…
