De Waag, or the old weighing house, is located at the Kaasmarkt square (Cheese Market).

It also houses the cheese museum and tourist information office, where you can get booklets with information about e.g. walks through the city.

The famous Cheese Market of Alkmaar is every Friday from 10:00 till 12:30, starting the first Friday of April until the first Friday of September.

I would recommend to take a canal tour to see the beautiful old houses from the water.

    Very nice page - I have driven past Alkmaar a few times, but did not visit it, so it's great to see what the town is about :-)
