The old centre of Alkmaar is compact and easy to find your way around. Narrow streets, canals and traditional buildings make for interesting waking tours. This is a view towards the old cheese market - now a museum. Pick up a tour map at the VVV and you will find suggested walks through the old apart of the city highlighting the many interesting sights you might otherwisw miss.

Cheese Centre, Alkmaar

In 2004 Alkmaar celebrates its 750th anniversary as an established town. Alkmaar is located in a typical Dutch polder landscape, close to a large nature reserve with dunes, beach, woods and water, water everywhere. Few places in the Netherlands display such a wide variety in terms of natural splendour.
