Cheese market, Alkmaar: 12 reviews and 28 photos


During summer season there's the famous cheese market, every friday morning. Be very early to ensure a place where you can see the whole thing, because it's a busy tourist attraction. As a small 12 year old I was there but couldn't see because of the tall people all around me. I had a second chance some 12 years ago. We booked a hotel on the market square and guess what: we overslept!
In September 2006, during our conference, we've arranged that all participants will get a VIP view of the event. So I guess I'll get lucky then!
Hence no photo. So I put up a modern cheese trader: the cheese shop!
