Visit Alkmaar for the first time and you will never forget her. A city with a beautiful and visible past. Wandering along the monuments, canals, shops, museums and terraces you will be surprised at the beauty of the old center. Known for the cheese market, which takes place twice a week during the season.
Wandering through the small streets you come across the most surprising things, but even with a boat you can roam the canals through the city and you get a completely different view of Alkmaar. The city is bustling with activities. Agricultural day and rag market, Kaeskoppenstad, Summer on the square (Free music performances), Saturday market, too much to mention.
Not only during the day but also in the evening hours you can enjoy yourself. In addition to countless restaurants, cafés and terraces, Alkmaar also has a beautiful cinema (7 halls) and a film house, De Vest theater, and De Victorie pop venue.
