We will be in Amsterdam during the first two weeks of May next year (2015), and are considering renting a houseboat. Would be very appreciative if anyone can help with the following questions:
1. Any recommendations for reliable houseboat rental companies?
2. Are mosquitoes a problem on houseboats in May in Amsterdam? I mean specifically at night - when the houseboat windows (which I know won't have screens) will need to be opened at least a bit to for air circulation and to keep the interior from becoming too stuffy and hot?
3. All the research I have done on walking times in Amsterdam has just left me confused, so I am hoping that some who have "walked the walk" can let me know - about how many minutes would it take to walk between the following points (unencumbered by luggage and going at about the same moderate speed as most people would for walking down a hallway inside a building):
Anne Frank House - Rijkmuseum
Central Station - Rijksmuseum
Anne Frank House - Artis Zoo
