Favorite thing: In the centre of Alkmaar are a number of small canals lined with little shops, bars and restaurants. This makes a good spot for photos – look for interesting reflections or capture the gentle pace of life here from one of the bridges. As in other Dutch towns and cities you can do a boat tour on the canal, which takes about an hour and leaves from near the Waagplein, the main market square. Unfortunately though we didn’t have time for this and had to make do with a short stroll on the banks.
