Alkmaar is best known as the cheese town. But besides the Cheese Market, there is much more to do in this historic city. Stroll through D'Oude city with its authentic shops, visit one of the hidden courtyards or visit the Waagplein or the Platte Stone Bridge. With its beautiful canals, Alkmaar is also easy to discover from the water. Go on a cruise or navigate under the low bridges with a rented boat.
