We are arriving in Amsterdam on the Eurostar on Friday, April 26 (YES, the day before Kings day!!); we arrive at 22:11; we are staying at the Mozy Amsterdam Houthavens for just this one night & then will be leaving the following day on a "bike & barge" cruise.
I believe we can take bus 48 or 248 but I've read maybe that they won't run at night?? (Because it is Kings Day the following day, I read that some transportation will be closed??)
Are buses double the price at night??
Do we pay on board using our credit or debit cards??
On Saturday, we are hoping to be able to walk from our hotel to our barge (we only each have a back pack); will this be safe or are there NO sidewalks & too busy streets??
Thank you so much for all of your wonderful, helpful advise!!
