What to expect

Begin your tour at the train station in Alkmaar, river cruise port or even your own hotel in the city center. Set off on a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this town.

The most important sights that your private guide will show are the public weighing house, home to the weekly cheesemarket on Fridays during the summer (april – first Friday September), Saint Lauren Church and the pretty 16th century constructed town hall. House with the bullet is a wooden building from the 16th century with a bullet in its façade dating back to the days of the war against Spain in 1573.

See the lively shopping streets and relax on of the many terraces in Alkmaar. The town of Alkmaar has over 400 monuments and is the oldest city in this part of the country, most likely founded by the Romans.

Your visit to Alkmaar is made complete with a visit to the Cheesemuseum. In this museum you will learn all about the process of cheesemaking from milk to the cheese you find back home in your local supermarket.

After having spent two lovely hours at lively Alkmaar, you can join the locals in the shops or bar. If you travel further on, the new train station welcomes you back for journey onwards.
