Train from Vondelpark to Alexandra-Rotterdam

Hello I plan to take a train from Vondelpark to Alexandra-Rotterdam on the 17th May around about mid-morning. What is best way to do this and how much does it cost? How long does it take and is there any other options such as public bus.

Do you have to pre-book a train or is it just turn up and pay when arrive?

Also different subject: Is smoking in restaurants / pubs allowed or is it illegal as it is in South Australia.

One more question: How far a walk would it take to get from Vondelpark to the redlight district and other must see sights in Amsterdam. (I am only in Amsterdam for 3 nights)

Cheers Troy

You might have difficulty taking a train from the Vondlepark. Take a tram to Central Station and then a train to Rotterdam

wwww.gvb.nl for tram info and www.ns.nl for train info.

You can just turn up and buy a ticket for the train, no need to book.

Smoking is still allowed in bars etc until the well reported smoking ban comes in July 1st but by that time everyone will be sitting on terraces in the sunshine hopefully.

Walking from the Vondelpark to the RLD is gonna take around 25 minutes depedning on which end of the park you mean as it will take 10 minutes to walk from end to end.
