train from Rotterdam central to Rotterdam Blaak ??

We will be arriving Rotterdam by Intercity train from Amsterdam in December. I have read that The Markthal Rotterdam market can be reached by train from central station and getting off at the Rotterdam Blaak stop which is next to The Markthal. Question? Is there a change of trains at central or would this be the same 'through' train from Amsterdam? And, would we need a separate ticket for the Rotterdam Central -> Blaak portion?

Thanks!

Hi there,

Just use www.ns.nl, from Amsterdam to Blaak station, In many cases no transfer needed. And yes one ticket from start to end.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Erik,

Yes - I just went onto ns.nl and did the journey planner and I saw that the same train can go from Amsterdam Central right to Blaak. Perfect! And, I saw the ones that require no transfers, even better!

We will probably just buy single journeys for this trip (and as well for the Maastrict trip ) rather than worrying about a travel pass. I am one for ease and less hassle!

Thanks - you have been so very helpful!

Why would you recommend the OP to change to a metro at Rotterdam centraal station, when she can simply stay on the same train from Amsterdam and continue on to Rotterdam Blaak?

Agree with 5. Also: Blaak is a perfect starting point for a journey through Rotterdam. Start at cube houses and Markthal and work your way through the city from there. :)
