Transit visa for the Netherlands?

edited July 2012 in Visa and Passport
I'm stopping over in Amsterdam on my way between the US and South Africa next month. I have a 23-hour layover where I'm meeting a friend and he's showing me around. I need to get a visa for the Netherlands, but does this qualify as a transit visa? If so, do I still need to show proof of accommodation when I apply? I'm honestly not planning to sleep at all.
